I didn’t go to the funeral. I have been to one funeral after Kane died and couldn’t control my tears and knew I could never go to another one again. The only funeral I’ll ever go to is my own when that time comes.

Some close family met here at my place. Eric’s youngest daughter Erica ironed an Iron Cross flag they had made to drape over the coffin. Eric was into WW2 aviation since one of his uncles was in the German air force in WW2 and was shot down over Russia…now his son is a pilot as well. Two daughters are marine biologists. Erica is my favourite since lately we have had much to do with her….

The funeral started at the funeral directors and between 150-180 showed up. They played the Blues Brothers music and Verity James led the service claiming that the service was the most unusual she ever attended. She is an ABC radio and TV personalty and apparently did a fantastic job of it. My stepfather said it was the up there with the top 3-4 funerals he ever went to. After the service and speeches, everyone was ushered into a room and given neat shots of Glen Fiddich whiskey…the women either coughed or passed it on to the men. Kurt was upset the women never got an opportunity to have an alternative sweet liqueur. From there they took the body in the back of a  Ford GT ute [Eric once had one] and held a private ceremony for the immediate family at the Fremantle Crematorium. Everyone met down at East Fremantle’s “Left Bank” hotels for drinks into the later night.

She is a Botticeli angel….

Today his ashes will be thrown at sea at Port Beach, Fremantle…that is also a private family occasion.

The Left Bank…

Nt to hurt you cas, bt has the G20 Summit crazed you or what?

No, it hasn't but my "things" have tied me down for instance, I still have antiques down in the shed after 10 yrs that still haven't been cleaned from slight smoke damage. I don't need them in my new house. I have walk in robes BUT, the furniture is exquisit. Our fire was put out before it reached the bedrooms so they were only attacked from smoke damage and water damage....

Like I said, I like room around me and not to cram the joint with clutter....I live with a pack rat and I cannot bare it.

If I had sold them I could have invested the money instead.....some possessions fall between good investments and sentimental attachment. That isn't wrong either.

I want to travel and unless I lighten the load, it isn't gonna happen.....I'm just going through a thing I guess.

Notices went in the paper today.

The funeral is Monday. I am not going to it. All my family are.

I’m not going to any funerals except my own. The last one I went to I couldn’t stop balling my eyes out and told myself I’m never going to another funeral again. Kane’s funeral broke me.

If my BIL’s side of the family don’t understand then that is too bad.

They have arranged a Ford GT Ute to carry the coffin. My BIL had a couple over his life times...they were into V8's and Harley Davidson bikes....in fact Eric has a collectors item HD bike....that will be sold.

Speaking about finding embarrassing things, the eldest daughter found a list of things her dad didn't like about her....one which said she was "money hungry"....a bit rich from someone who wanted the best of everything and all the kids got designer labeled clothes.

The real embarrassment is when someone dies and the relatives go through his stuff and end up finding all the **** he's stashed in his house.

I don't collect "stuff." I'm pretty ascetic in terms of decorating and tcotschies. For one thing "stuff" is just that - stuff. I don't need a lot of crap around me to make me happy. I guess the way I grew up influenced that - we were well-to-do and my mom, who came from a relatively poor Irish family in the Falls Road (that's in Belfast) as a Catholic, was hell bent on collecting things because she considered a sign of success (although after a couple of years of marriage to my father, who came from a well-to-do family in Paris, she got over that). For another thing, I don't want to have to dust all that ****. I can't imagine having 200 Hummel figurines on my fireplace mantel and having to take them all down, dust the mantel, then dust the figurines individually. **** that noise. I like clean, open spaces with lots of air and light.

Just a friendly reminder. Next time you think about buying something, just remember if you die, it is something one of your relatives will have to either, keep, give away, or sell.

Why do we accumulate so much crap?

In the west we have too much. We tie ourselves down with it.

When I had to start life again, I was happy to have just enough nice stuff to be content. I'm not a collector type person....I never got that bug, thank God.

I dread the thought of my mother dying and us having to deal with a huge house full of "you name it."

I'm thinking about my ex boyfriend Phillip.....3 houses FULL OF crap....yes, nice crap...but no heirs to deal with it if he should pass on.

There comes a time in your life, and I have personally reached that myself, when your "things" feel like a straight jacket. OK, I might be going through something right now but it is the realization that from this point on someone is going to die, in my extended family and friends and their things are going to be swallowed up.

Give more to the needy. Have garage sales,......and more importantly stop spending so much.

Even the charities turn away donations these days where I am from. Quite ludicrous when there is so much extreme poverty in developing nations.

There is a new way to donate where I live....I should imagine other countries have already thought of it, but we now have bins outside of shopping centres where people can buy pet food and put it in them for the animal shelters.

Be a conduit for the flow of life and lighten your load. Do it now before it gets to be a problem.

You guys are what, 12 hours ahead of New York? They called you pretty quick. I hope he went peacefully (he probably did if they had him on enough morphine and no, I'm not being facetious).

Aw, honey, I'm really sorry. I don't know what else to say. I will definitely keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers.
