I honestly think that would be a wonderful
idea.. the Irish are known for their wakes,
part of our history, and they serve a very good
purpose psychologically .. a wake gives closure..
and I cannot think of a anything more suitable
than a cyber wake here, where many folks who knew
the late SKIPPER, and hung out with him
every day, could come..
kinda like placing a bouquet of flowers..
where someone died;
naturally, when friendship ends, and that
person is no longer among us, it creates
a void, and that [IMO] is where a wake has great
value, folks can pay tribute, reminisce
on tales he told, add links, poems,
anecdotes etc... and if it is kept nicely
and free
[hopefully] of negatives it could, in time, be
presented to SKIPPERS folks.
Someone ought to start it..
I wouldn't, as there are folks who knew
him FAR better than I did,
and I feel one of 'those' should do the honours..
Someone like ie > Jeffrey.. or others
from his thread.
lovely idea & basically what we have here already...the trolls would show disrespect on another thread a swell...I told Skipper's RW friend about this thread if they ever want to read...

Thanks JO,

and, may I say my mentioning 'a wake' was in NO way to denigrate this
fine thread started by you with the very best of intentions,
even I said in #107 here.... it was the one thread
that brought all folks together, in a good way -

alas, I spoke too soon...

Grace N, from what I have seen of your posts in the past 3 years, you are an absolute sweetheart...

...I was thinking of bumping up other threads of Skipper...thot others that knew him longer/better might enjoy...but the trolls would be in a frenzy once again...what the heck...

I think Skipper would have loved the idea of a wake. To remember him and his sense of humor, his heart, he would be touched with that.

And to those who can't possibly be content with paying their respects without causing hurt to others, we can ignore that, like Skipper would have.

Well,
Since this is the Wake thread,
here's a little anecdote..

Back in the day [and that means a long .. L-O-N-G
time ago(:

I was around 7 yrs old, during the schoolyard break
as we sat in the sun, drinking plain milk and eating
bread n'jam, a news flash went around like wildfire..
that ..

'Old Paddy who lived in the big house, up on the hill
had died'!!!!! big news but the more important
news for us >

rumor spread that .. after school, if anyone wanted to go
to the big house and kneel beside his bed and say a
'Hail Mary' for his soul, they would be brought to the parlor
afterwards where they would get a big glass of lemonade
and two chocolate biscuits!

THIS WAS HUGE NEWS(:

since we never saw lemonade
[in those time] ONLY at Christmas ...
and when the lemonade was delivered before Xmas,
my mother would check the, days prior to
the 25th, in order to see if it had been interfered with! lol.

Anyway, a group of us trouped up the hill to the big house, and the conversation was, would we be afraid of
the fella in the bed, but some genius among us said
if we happened to look at him and became afraid,
just pretend he's asleep
[Dear old paddy who never harmed a fly(:

When it came to my turn, I knelt by his bed,
my eyes squeezed shut!
and with all my heart recited.. the HAIL MARY and in my childish mind .. added
'this is for YOU Paddy'

Afterwards, good as their word, I received two
delicious chocolate biscuits.. AND a very
tall glass of lemonade, my eyes of wonder studying
the fizzy bubbles which rose to the top,
hardly believing that *this was all mine* and it
wasn't even Christmas ..

Happy days,

Thanks for the memory, Paddy...
which has never faded.

I wasn't able to say my peace.

Skip, I know your up there and you're in a good place. You are a good soul and have been a good person in life. I wish you peace and comfort.

I/we will miss you.....

The new Rabbi was in the middle of a sermon when he suddenly beckoned to the shammes to come over.
The Rabbi said to him, "That man in the third row is asleep. Wake him up."
The shammes replied, "You put him to sleep. You wake him up.Ē A toast!!!(Here's to you, Skipper.)
