Eulogies

Why have I been so quiet lately, you ask?

I have been a little busy, dealing with a bit of a family emergency. However, I have not gone away. You’re not getting rid of me that easy! But, if you would like to know a little more (warning: this has nothing to do with science fiction, nor fiction of any kind, but it does involve a little writing), delve a little further into my own personal life, then I invite you to take a peek at my other, older, and until today much dustier, blog.

I don’t advertise the existence of that blog very much, because it has no real meaning except for my own family and myself. Strictly speaking, it’s a genealogy blog, but it’s also a blog where I share thoughts on things going on within my own life.

Until today, I had not written anything over there for five years. The last few posts I had written all had to do with the death of my father, six years ago, and my experience as executor of his estate.

And then a month ago, my mother passed away. And now I am writing about that.

I’ll have more to say before I’m done with that subject, and then I will be getting right back into the thick of it over here, but meanwhile, feel free to peel back the covers of my life and see what lies hidden away.

It starts on February 6th. That is the day the office at your mobile home park, where you have lived for twelve years, calls your daughter to express their concern. It seems you forgot to pay the rent for the space your home sits in, and in twelve years this had never happened before. You are in the habit of visiting the clubhouse each day, making a pot of coffee, and chatting with the manager there, but on this day you seem to have trouble with the coffee pot, and when the manager asks you about the late rent, you don’t know what she’s talking about.

    Matt, Thank you for a well executed rendition of what happens when, and for all the advice. They don’t teach  us that in school. I think your dad and mom would be proud of you and your writing skills, I always at awe.  Sorry they are both gone, obviously they were special people.I haven’t caught up on your novel writings , but hope you will be posting more chapters. I, not being a reader, appreciate the occasional short updates, as opposed to a whole book, which would intimidate me…plus I can enlarge the print on my computer.  You are an amazing person, I never could understand why you had such a bad rep from your relatives.You certainly have proven them wrong!Welcome back.-with appreciation for your sharing-Linda
