Wow, that's awful. I don't make an effort to make friends on internet boards anymore, but I enjoyed interacting with him. Always a pleasure talking to someone who knows his music and is a nice person who immediately makes you feel comfortable. So sorry for your loss, Kath.

Dearest Kath

I've know about this awful news for several days and have taken my time, trying to find the right words to say, but I simply can't. I will simply say Reap seemed like such a good guy and so right for you. I'm so, so sorry. Take care of yourself. x

Reap this. Reap that. Jesus, Kath, it seemed like sometimes all I heard from you was about Reap. And now he's gone, really gone, I'm so sorry for you. We're here for you, babe.

Way too young, way too soon. It's just so sad, I don't know what more to say. Other than that I know you've already had more burdens in life than seems right.

thank you everyone for such lovely and supportive messages. i appreciate all of em more than i can ever express.

i just got my internet connection back. i really shouldn't go off on comcast. maybe later, although they redeemed themselves in the end. after a court order.

being able to look at a screen and type words... yeah. i will have many things to say, other than the fact that i already know how y'all are, deep in the core. this thread moves me. and i have been so moved after the beezle passed.

anyway, this will take some time. i'm sorry it's taken this long to be able to respond. but even though i am sure most of ye will know my philosophy and arrant, fanatical love for reap... even though most of ye know how i feel about enduring love... i'm gonna start with something more... technical.

in the last two months, i have had to deal with a mind-blowing amount of creditors, bankers, insurance types, etc. i was and am clueless about all of it. reap handled everything. all accounts. cue fantastic HR dept folk at his work, me hiring a probate lawyer, a gazillion tons of legal red tape... hard to explain. add to that the fact that i will be moving back to new orleans, and a house of twenty years will get reduced to two rooms and some storage. upshot: chaos.

sooo, please excuse me if my message right this very now is this: i don't care how old or young you are, what yer relationships are like, how many children you have (two-legged, four-legged, befeathered, etc) or none of the above, PLEASE listen to me. if you haven't already, find a lawyer tomorrow. asap. seriously. make yer wishes known, ALL of em, as specifically as possible, about EVERYTHING. honestly. spare yer beluvveds from having to deal with all the crap while they are grieving and not in the best place to handle all of it.

reap was 49. i am 55, and i was always the one spazzin out, tearing rotator cuffs and knee tendons, catching every microbe that floated near me. we never thought it was urgent that he do this stuff, although we did talk about it. in an -ish way.

but zappp, he was gone. (from this earth, but never from MY reality).

get it done. now. trust me on this.

that being said, please don't worry about me and attila. reap left me a life insurance policy. i never even knew about it. he never told me. not that this surprises me... such a generous, loving man. but it means attila and i will be okay, for some time to come.

thanks again, everyone. i will add more. much more. (heh.) i'm so glad to be typing on a keyboard instead of texting. not as glad as i have been reading over this thread.

love to everyone.

Amen to all of this.

My parents got this all as sorted out as could be before my Mom died. And even so, when she did die, my Dad spent the next several months getting her estate/trust/etc. squared away. And that was WITH all of her shit being in writing and notarized and whatever else. I'm glad he was here to deal with it because a) it gave him something to distract him at least a little from the grief of losing a partner he'd known literally his whole life, and b) if it had been up to me I wouldn't have had a clue where to begin.

So yeah - do get it together, folks.

kath, I've said it before, and I'll say it as many times and as often as you want to hear it and then some - I/we all love you to pieces. xoxo
