For Raine Written by 63mago * * Advertisements 12 thoughts on “For Raine” I feel so sad for her loss. As you know, I lost my dad almost 6 months ago. She lives 1000 miles away from me. :0( I wish I could do something to help. I do not know whether it is over. I read her last entry and it reminded me of some things. Es stirbt sich nicht so einfach. (C) I’m sorry, I’ve been out of the loop for a couple of weeks. Have you lost a friend mein hertz? Hugs to you. No Roses. Raine is a blogging friend, I read her for some years. She has to face her mother’s dying. No, death doesn’t have any mercy. Sx I was thinking about death the other day and how I would like my funeral. I want a sombre affair with everyone dressed in black, my coffin to be dragged by a horse drawn hearse with lots of wailing cause they’re the best ones. During the service I’ll be sat propped up in an open top coffin with the top of my head cut off like in the film Hannibal, but with the brain scooped out and the cavity filled with cottage cheese, guests will be encouraged to tuck in whilst Bjork’s sings Gloomy Sunday. It’s going to be exquisite. I also want the horse drawn hearse… and the horses must be glossy black stallions and have enormous black feather plumes on their heads. And I want a sort of New Orleans vibe going on with lots of saxophone playing. SX I’m not having a funeral in order to avoid the final embarrassment of having no one show up! Hard times. It’s a hard road to travel. But travel it we must. At least there are friends to share the journey with, to laugh and cry with us. I am so sorry for Raine. We all do have to face death – that is a certainty. I hope that Raine and her mother will have peace at this time. You are truly a great friend for putting up this post for her. Björg singing Gloomy Sunday – that alone should brake death’s sting, dear Mitzi. This dreadful babycake was a first try in this direction … You develop a feather fetish, dear Scarlet … Yes. So let’s simply not die, XL. And dressing gowns, dear Roses … I have no idea whether I qualify as great friend, LGS. A train of thoughts and memories finally let to this song. But I’ll bring Sunday Music asap. Death is such a horrible part of this life. My heart goes out to Raine. I never really knew pain until I lost my Son. Comments are closed.
