My Dads memorial page http://www.bruchfuneralhome.net/obituary/4408127

Give me some time friends. Most of my posts are on auto pilot. The ones on auto pilot have www.fireyourboss.xyz in grey font below my name. The ones without that, like this one, I’m manually posting in real time. I havent written anyone back yet in my facebook inbox. Please don’t let that stop you from writing me. I need you. I will respond to EVERYONE no matter how long it will take me. I just need some time. Tomorrow my dad will be viewed. Family and friends will say their good byes and visit with each other. My dad will have full military honors because he didnt just serve for a few years and get out, he made an entire career out of service to his country and hard work for his family. I already said bye for now to my dad. He’s not in his body any more. For me, the only reason his viewing is important is because he wanted to be in uniform one last time at his own funeral. You can count on me dad we are making it happen for you. For me the most important time spent with my dad is the time I spent with him while he was in his body living with us. I never moved away. I spent more time at my parents house than my own house, literally. I went to the hospital to visit him 2 or 3 times per day in his final 12 days as an inpatient. I cried a lot before he passed, and so much more since his passing. Tomorrow is going to be so hard I might choke on my own tears and at the same time im hoping for so much emotional healing being around so much love and support from family and friends. I’m talking to my dad more than god right now. I’m struggling hard. More than anything else I’ve ever struggled with. Losing a parent you’re so close to and love so much is terrifying. It’s my reality now. My dad wants me to be happy and enjoy life. I’m going to. I just can’t promise that I can right now but I will I promise dad I will love life again. He literally told me just days before his passing that we have to face reality and accept this. Dammit it’s hard but I will be ok hopefully sooner than later. I love you dad.

Lawrence John Birkenmeyer III, 74, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully, Friday, October 13, 2017 at Aurora…

Velvet Clark So sorry for your loss it’s not easy losing your parents. My mom passed away the day before my 39th birthday so now all my birthdays mean nothing to me. Take what time you need to heal. Just remember to take care of yourself during this time.

Manage

Patsy Rideout It’s a time when one can’t taste the wine for the bitter, but, your Dad will always be hanging around from time to time…you will feel him & your mind will receive his messages, more telepathically now & that’s ok. It’s good to know the next realm has so many awesome features. Stay strong in the midst of your tears.
