Kiss my ass Grim!

Postby Swashy » Sat Apr 08, 2017 2:52 pm

Well we just found out that my father in law passed away in his sleep last night. If it makes any sense it's as much of a surprise that this happened as much of a surprise as it isn't. Me and Lady Swash have always dreaded this day because Kevin was in slowly failing health for a long time. Hell of a great guy and even better father. He was so damn good that after his divorce he won custody of my sister in law and Lady Swash! A career plumber who devoted his life to his family and his work. For what it's worth it was never the same for him after he lost his job about 9 years ago. He was the kind of guy you hear about who passes shortly after retiring but the problem was that he didn't and I think to a degree he felt useless at times. This is a guy that had a job by 14 and by fatherhood he was up at 6 AM to leave for work and then swing a pick axe or drill a jackhammer through the old swamps of Long Island in the dead of winter all day long. But despite the way he might've felt he was selfless in every sense of the word. To the point of taking Lady Swash in rent free when she was in nursing school raising Swash Junior because he knew raising a daughter, going to work and school would've been near impossible. Swash Junior is taking it about as well as any 9 year old girl can and Lady Swash just wants to be alone.

I know I'm ranting but he really was a hell of a guy. Any and all thoughts and prayers are appreciated right now. I'm not sure what's happening yet but we might be making the trek up to Spring Hill soon.

It's going to be a long road buddy. Just hang in there and be strong for your peeps - just as you say your father in law was.

Sorry to hear it, Swashy. The Mrs. must be pretty tore up because it sounds like he was one of the really good humans.

Swash .. I'm so sorry .. he sounded like a great guy .. and gave you a great wife .. it's okay to vent .. this is a great outlet, and grief takes on a great many different aspects ... watch Mrs Swash, hold her, let her scream, talk, be quiet, whatever she needs .... it's never easy .. many people here know .. wish we could more ...

Know our prayers are for her family, her, and you and your strength

Oh Swashness, I am so very sorry for your loss. Certainly you and Lady Swash were fortunate to have such a wonderful man in your lives and it makes the loss that much more difficult to comprehend. My thoughts are with you during this challenging time. May his memory be a blessing...

Just wanted to swing by and say thanks to everyone for the well wishes and support. Had a fantastic day with the family yesterday. Not everything is set in stone but the cremation appointment has been made official for this morning and it's just a matter of time of picking what day we're going to get together and scatter the ashes. Figuring out a day and time that works for that many people is a little tricky. The internal affairs are being handled by my brother in law and it'll eventually figure itself out.

Everyone's been handling it well. I don't think it's quite sunk in yet for some people (myself included) but isn't that the way it always works? Like I said thanks to everyone.
