Robert Futrelle, RIP

My father passed away on Wednesday, some four months after the death of my mother.

Just wanted you all to know. I may be taking a few more days off from the blog.

David,

That’s terrible. Please know I, and I expect everyone else here, has you in their thoughts. Know, too, that you will get through this, but it’s going to really suck for a while.

These are the things that matter in life. Everything else is just tinsel. You parents must have been wonderful people. Your work and generosity are proof of that.

Pop Futrelle has to his credit a smart, incisive, and conscientious son, which speaks well of him.

You take as long as you need to—particularly after having lost both parents within such a brief span, and to top off the year this has been; have some social-distant hugs and a mischief of ginger pet mice:

My condolences, awful to lose your parents so quickly. Four months— 20 years between losing my mom and dad was hard enough. So sorry. Take care of yourself.

You’ve had a rougher year than most of us, and it was no picnic for anyone.

He looks like a fun guy.

Hi David, so sorry to hear that. My sympathies.

My friend’s dad also died at the beginning of the year (cancer, he was only about 60). It’s always tough.

So very sorry to hear this.
As time goes by, the pain will lessen and the good memories remain. I wish you loads of cat snuggles for the horrible bit in between.

I’m very sorry for your loss, and I very much hope you have lots of support with the practical things as well as the grief. Internet best wishes and respects from far away aren’t much, but sending them anyway.
