Thanks Severn

You'll be glad to know we sang "Ben Backstay" at the Funeral Home. I hope it surprised the Funeral Director to hear a Sea Chantey right on the the heels of "In the Garden".

Vince,

So sorry to hear about your loss of a beloved and wonderful wife and the loss of a friend to all who knew her. Your love and devotion have been constantly evident since I've known you, and it must be an unspeakable viod in your life. I did not get back from the UK in time to make the service, or you know I surely would have been there.

My best to a friend, in loss of another...

My religious, pragmatic, prosaic, non-mystical father said that after my mother died he heard her speak his name several times. He was surprised- and thrilled.

She is with you still. And will be, as long as you need her.

An sweerie (sweet & eerie) happening this morning.

Last night, I brought home the flowers that I got for Robi and put them where I thought the kitties wouldn't get at them. When I woke up, I went looking for Fuzzee (her favorite cat), as Splotch and Minnie were in bed with me. I found Fuzzee asleep on the top of the glass cabinet, basically right over her urn, guarding the flowers! He has NEVER perched up there before! He sniffed at them, but otherwise didn't try to disturb them. He is an extraordinary cat! I amended the website to include the pictures of this amazingly loving cat!

I just got back from Robi's Memorial Celebration (I refuse to use the "F" word). There was song, joy and friendship. A funeral parlor is an unusual place to hear a sea chantey, but I lead her favorite (Ben Backstay) to an enthusiastic crowd. Later, at the dinner (OOFF! So much food!) we had a mini chantey sing. We had Weapons of Musical Destruction and audience participation! I got several comments where folks said that I throw a great funeral Memorial Celebration.

My family, my friends, my co-workers & my cats will get me thru this.

Pix (scads of them) will be posted shortly.

A singing partner and a lover--NOT an affordable loss. So sorry. Don't stay too much alone. While there's not much friends and family can do for the grief(but hold the extra tissue), they CAN watch for signs of shock and take care of you when that occurs. Hang on.
I *H*A*T*E* the C-word. Let's find a way to make it obsolete--just a dictionary listing that ends up, "...no traceable incidence in population planet-wide."

So many things to say, or write or quote. At times like these, mostly insufficient. A profound, soul-shattering loss no doubt. But there is good news in that many of us believe this is not simply an end--but also a beginning. You will be reunited. My prayers and condolences as well. Words, at a time like this, seem so inadequate, but it's all we have.

I pity those who tread the path and never find one like your Robi, sir. Can you imagine going through all we go through in this world, in our lives, and doing so without the absolute love that you seem to have found with her? Congratulations on your great good fortune to have known her, loved and been loved by her. You sang together, you created a life together.

I wish there is something I could say to help you deal with the grief. I cannot. But I can tell you that I am sorry for your loss, and I am sorry for the emptiness. Based on the great capacity for love that you so obviously possess, I can tell that you that will heal ...... later.

God be good to her,

Mick Lane
