I buried my Stepson today. He was 46 and died in a motorcycle accident last week. Joel suffered from ADHD and looked to methamphetimines to keep his head clear. We were only going to hold a private family service, but noticed that his Facebook page exploded with gestures of sadness. So we held a memorial service for the public this afternoon. The chapel was packed. I am so glad we opened the service. Many of Joel's childhood friends whom we had not seen in many years attended. One person, said he owed Joel $400 and gave it to us in an envelope. Such genuine love and friendship is rare and our son, with all his faults, was loved by many. We asked a neighbor who was also a police officer & minister to conduct the service. He connected all the dots, from family to the friends. He was also the first officer to arrest Joel, many years ago. This memorial service was probably the most unusual, yet right on point with a message for all.

 

Late this afternoon, some of us went back to the cemetery and toasted Joel with a bottle of his favorite, Jameson. Sharing a shot one last time.

 

I will miss him. I miss him now.

Very sad Foz.  My prayers are going out to your family.  My, it's been a very bad year for family and friends being sick and passing away.  I can't wait for 2015 to be over.

Thanks much to all. Been a busy week, as things begin to slow down, it will be Christmas, my birthday and the new year. All in the bat of an eye. I saved some of the Jameson that we toasted Joel with after the services. I will hold it until his birthday (June 30) and toast him again. I miss him dearly, but know that he is in a better place and will be taken care of.
