I decided to write my own obituary for two reasons. First, it seems painful as hell for your friends and loved ones to sit down and write some glowing report of me which we all know would be filled with fish tales, and half-truths. The other reason is that I did not do anything amazing, with the exception of giving birth to my son, Daemian, which, by the way, turned out to be awesome, wonderful, witty and smart as hell. My entire life was transformed the minute he took his first breath. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful soul. I will miss him so but I plan to see him again.
I also had the very fortunate treasure, to have a beautiful, intelligent, tenacious, ardent and strong mother for my grandbabies. She has no equal and her dedication to her family is just simply breathtaking. Also I had the opportunity (the universe was working here) to find my dearest, gracious, astonishing open and honest and understanding husband Dean, which, I will wait for in eternity. I could have not done what I did without him by my side.
Earlier in my life, I just tried to do my best with whatever I had to do while keeping my heart alongside my head and just kept stepping forward. In truth, Raising my son was a monumental part of my life. I don’t think I have ever gotten through it yet. It was a life- long endeavor and I will miss my son until I see him again.
If I ever hurt anyone, shame on me. I am sorry. Just remember I loved you down deep in my heart. My life wasn’t perfect but I am not sure I would want to do anything different. Those that loved me, cared for me, laughed with me and helped me along the way, I extend my sincerest blessings, you taught me things so that I could have a wonderful life and without you I could have never done or accomplished what I did. I was blessed beyond measure knowing each and every one of you.
Believe me, there is something much bigger than us out there. And it is good. Very good. Every frog, bird, ant and earthworm are a part of us, in the bigger picture. The universe is so perfect, every part of it, I can’t wait to share it with you.
There are some benefits to dying. I am no longer scared of gun incidents, cancer, the IRS, North Korea, the ozone layer, wrinkles or need to hide from the news during election seasons. Know that I will be meeting IN PERSON Freddie Mercury and Jimi Hendrix. I will give them your love.
Before you leave me here, write a letter to someone and tell them what a positive effect they had on your life, forgive someone who doesn’t deserve it, talk to kids about their hopes and dreams, make someone smile today, tell those close to you how much they mean to you, and above all, remember we are here such a short time, enjoy the shit out of it. Please make me a martini, now.
