Amadeus I apologize if my comments above seem a little odd but hearing about your father left me quiet but thinking about the passing of my father a couple of years back. Things that we wish we did for him and the chuckles he gave us after he left.

At the viewing of my father we presented him in a suit and tie. He looked sharp! Though after the ceremony my mother and I got to thinking that he really loved wearing Hawaiian shirts. We still think to this day of why we didn't send him off in a Hawaiian shirt. Going over the obituary with the funeral director my Dad already prepared the obituary ahead of his passing. He called out his family by name and I immediately fell to the floor laughing. He named his sister "Lucinda" instead of Cindy which she despised being called. She would turn into the wicked witch of the west if you call her Lucinda. We left it like that for the papers.

I hope this forum helps comforts you for this time. If anything we will be here if you just need to talk things out.
