“For My Father in Law RiP”


Description from Vampire Chickie Ravin: Just wanted to let everyone know, I'll only be around intermittently this week. Brians father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, 6:00 pm est, on Sat. the 29th. This pick is in memory of John, no one should have to go the way he did, and it is also for Brian. I so understand, and empathize, but I know that the best I can do right now is be there for words are just that right now, in this haze of anger and pain, words just aren't enough. Hugs to all, I'll pop in when I can. I'll be on for just a few more minutes, then I have GOT to crash, I've been awake over 24 hours trying to be there for Brian and his twin sister Lynn, as well as my niece Mia, and nephew Mathew. So I have to get some sleep. Otherwise I'll have the alphabet on my face and drool in my keyboard. Hugs to all.

    Ravin, I’m so sorry to hear about your father-in-law. My sympathies to you and your family. I once read a quote that I find helpful at timew like this. It went something like: “Death is not the extinguishing of the light, but the blowing out of the candle because the dawn has come.”

    Just checking in with you today to see how you & Brian are doing, my friend. A reminder — take good care of yourselves during this stressful time — it’s so easy to forget to eat properly or get enough rest. Must be the “Mother Hen” in me looking out for one of her “Chicks”….Love & hugs to you both.

  21. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Thank you so much everyone! All the thoughts, words and prayers mean the world to Brian and I. This is such a difficult think, and we have the added responsibility of trying to get his pitiful excuse for a mother into assisted living, somewhere they can monitor her pill intake and alcohol consumption. Lynn (Brians twin sister) can’t do it, she’s a single mom with 2 kids to worry about, and Brian and I sure can’t do it. She hates me anyway, heh. But thank you all so much, from Brian and I both. You all are so wonderful.
