Now, there are things you don't know, and that's OK and normal of course, but rest assured that BB is not going to offend cheeze. I'm really sorry you saw it that way and I see how that happened and I think it's great that you stepped in the way you did, but it's all good here. Really. Kudo's to you for doing so.
Enough said, sorry if I rashed anybody (BB) but it kind of struck a nerve for me but I'm quite sure at this point that I misunderstood BB's original comment.

No worries. Mind you, I wouldn't have come into the thread with the comment I made but I'm from the Robin Williams school of emotional healing so I often will try to lighten the mood if it's not entirely inappropriate. Sometimes it is and I stick my foot in my mouth but I'm always ready to try to make it right, and only 70% of HBT members think I'm a prick so I'm doing a damn sight better than Cheezy is.

My condolences Cheezy. Someday we will share stories and drink to loved ones here and there.

Consider me in the 30% as far as you're concerned....

Matter if fact, Cheezy is pretty much at family status at this point by default, whether he wants to be or not, so I don't see any reason not to include you too.

Isn't it amazing how you can remember exactly what was happening when someone you love passes away?

I was working on my '69 Mustang at the FIL's house when my wife came out to give me the telephone and she said, "You're dad had a heart attack. And he died." I can still hear her voice and the whole scene in my mind. Dad was helping friends at a restaurant down the road and just fell over.

When my grandma passed away she had an emergency and was taken to the hospital. I got a call while working in a factory. By the time I got to my cousin's house in the same small town, I got the call she passed away.

Sitting at the table with my wife and mom playing games. Got the call from dad. Grandpa had passed away. This was not unexpected. The memory still remains.

The truth is, you will never forget when they pass away. But you also can't forget who they were when they were alive. What they taught you. The good times you had. You notice things about them that maybe got passed down to you.

It's up to you to decide if you want to dwell on the passing, or celebrate the living.

Only 70%?

My thoughts are with you Cheezy, and I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how hard it is for your brain to be associating all the things that are supposed to conjure images of joy with pain. My grandfather lost his mother on Thankgiving before he was 16, and I only found out that that was why he was always so quiet on thanksgiving just recently. You and I might be in the same boat shortly... Grandma (the mother figure in my life) doesnt have long left, and chances are she will be gone by Christmas...

An epic IPA to celebrate a life instead of (and in addition to) mourning a death.

That sounds exactly like the Cheezy enigma we've come to know. A conundrum wrapped in an enigma speared by a unicorn horn.
