Thanks all.... just got up and it's starting to hit me. This is so stupid, I was 1 floor away and could have been helping him. He is like me, always trying to do things himself. The cops were here for a few hours it seemed like, asking lots of questions that had obvious answers. The whole family is just shocked. My girl and I were watching a movie and heard the crash and I though, what the hell is he doing now. He was always messing with something around here. Then my mom came down almost kicking my door in and it all started.


Just so it makes more sense, my parents own a 14 story office building in jackson. They live on the top floor and I'm staying on the 11th floor. Accidend happened on the 12th. He had stuff stored there and his workshop is on the 14th so we hear lots of stuff. No 13th floor though. I'm just rambling a nit this morning as soon alot of hard shit will be coming.

Peace...

So what should I do with where it happened, there is alot of broken marble and all. Some friends cleaned up all the blood last night. But should I get all the other stuff out of there today or let it sit till my brother gets here, on one hand I just want it all gone but will he want to see it? My uncles are going to come over from detroit today, I hope they will be helpful. I'm fucking 32 years old and I've only been to 2 funerals. Now I have to plan one?

Leave it be for alittle while, you've got other things to deal with. Take car of the funeral and give your family time. Allow yourself to greive (sp), this is part of the process of dealing with the tragedy. When you've had time to come to grips with the situation go back and take care of the mess. It will be hard but when you are done I think you will feel a sense of closure.

My father died over a period of 10 years. Near the end he talked about death or dying alot, mostly statements like "If I'm still here to do (fill in the blank)". When he did finally die, my stepmother would not tell me the time and location of his funeral (stepmom is psycho and has never liked me). During the funeral she never talked to me and after she would not disclose what my father's final wishers were for his body. To this day I don't know where my dad is buried, if he's been buried, had his body donated to science, nor anything else.

Be strong yet ball your eyes out, don't feel guilty because you feel bad, and most importantly, don't make yourself feel guilty for your dads death because you are not.

I hope the best for you and your family.

Really great advice. Nuggets, sorry to hear your situation.

Tizken, you've got a tough few days ahead but you'll get through it. Stay tough and have faith. Your mom really needs you right now. You're the man of the family now and they are going to look to you for strength. Believe me, you have it.

Prayers out to you.

Sorry to hear about what happened. Times will be tough for a while, but I'm sure your father taught you a lot of things that you can pass down to others.

My father passed away a year ago last Aug. I was pretty close to him but I saw it coming for @ 2 years. He had been sick and getting worse. I don't think of him as gone, I just can't pick up the phone and talk to him. I do catch myself telling my wife I need to call him and ask him something sometimes.

Be as big a help to your family (especially your mother) as you can. Prayers to you too!
