Absent Homies

quote [ WeiYang said @ 7:15pm on 25th Mar - mod/reply | edit
FIREWORKS. Like one or five of those big packages of rockets and flares and things.

Works on so many levels; (1)'your life was brief, but bright and beautiful and made a hell of a noise blah blah blah'(2)and i really mean this, fireworks are friggin' magical and who doesn't like them, especially guys?(3)celebratory and not maudlin(4)scares away evil spirits... ]

This is kind of a follow up to this post

and my comment way down at the bottom.

My brother died in April, so I got to try it out sort of. It was a good recommendation.

Sucks about losing your bro. I can see making fireworks a traditional part of seeing someone off. For the reasons you stated, plus it's illegal most places, and committing a crime always makes people feel better.

Illegal here too except for the 4th of July. I was prepared to talk my way out of it or pay the fine.

As a follow up to my comment on that thread two years ago, my dad held on until three days ago. That's about two years more than his doctors had expected, and probably 3/4 of that time was pretty good. Thanks to that thread and the conversation it started with my dad, his wife is seriously considering the fireworks option. Also, hospice workers should be earning six figures. They are amazing.

Timely as fuck.
My old room-mate passed away a few years ago.
He had moved to the other side of the country and was dealing with depression.
We still post a little something on facebook on his birthday (yesterday)
