dream moon JO B, are you saying that your dad told one of his dirty jokes through the medium at the spiritualist church?   That's amazing!  I have  five different friends who have gone to a spiritualist church to try to hear from their loved ones who have passed on.  They are convinced that the dead live on in the afterlife.  However, I am afraid to go to the spirit church because I heard that bad spirits can imitate our loved ones, too, and I don't want a bad spirit following me home.  One Chinese friend told me that his brother went to an antique store and when he came home, his other brother who is psychic, asked him, "Where have you been, because you brought some spirits home with you."  He had been looking at some old Chinese funeral shrines at the antique shop.   I have heard so many stories from people I know who claim to have seen or heard spirits, that I think they must exist.

Yes, it would be so nice to have them back just the way they used to be.  Today I had a good cry, because my roommate was mean to me and when I defended myself, then he blamed me for raising his blood sugar.  My dad had diabetes, too, but I helped him get his sugars down to normal, and I helped cure gangrene on his toes from peripheral arterial disease, but this roommate of mine won't let me help him.  I hate to see people destroying themselves and then try to take me down with them.  My dad was such a saint compared to most people.  If only he had watched his diet more carefully years ago, but he didn't want to listen.  He had a sweet tooth and loved refined carbos and processed meats.  And the trouble is I enjoyed these unhealthy foods right along with him, until he started to be ill, and then I felt so sorry that he couldn't enjoy tasty food anymore.  When you have congestive heart failure even a bologna sandwich can send you to the hospital on account of too much salt.  Life is so cruel sometimes, but I thank God that he enjoyed good health for most of his life.  He was a boxer in the army during the Korean War, and he used to walk a lot up these steep hills. In fact, he was so fit, we didn't know he had advanced heart disease until he was in his 80's.

I feel the same way about my dad's favorite movies. I can't watch them without missing him.  There's a huge part of my life that I lost because I can't enjoy a lot of things anymore because he's not here with me. When I see videos of old films or songs on YouTube that I think he would have enjoyed, it just kills me.  And it hurts even more when I see the video was uploaded while he was still alive.  How did I ever miss it before!  It makes me feel guilty that I didn't look hard enough before.

dream moon JO B, your messages touched my heart.  I feel the same way about my dad.  We also were soul mates.  Once you've known such happiness with another person it's hard to live without it.  We watched Kukla, Fran and Ollie on tv together when I was a girl.   It was so much fun going to the movies together but that pretty much stopped after we got a vcr in 1982.  Then we watched thousands of movies together on videos and dvd's.  My dad's brothers shared his love for the old films and music, but they're gone, too.  It was so much fun when we'd all get together to watch an old western or a musical.  A family favorite was Buck Jones.  I'd love to find a new movie companion.  My current roommate is too grumpy to be much fun.

New York Times essay I wrote about orphanhood

Hi everyone, I am new to the group, but not to loss. Thanks for adding me.I wanted to share an essay I wrote, "Welcome to the Freak Show: Becoming an Orphan in My 20s", that is in the New York Times today. Even though all of our experiences with grief are unique, I hope it resonates in some way.Best, KelliSee More
