My Father Passed On 父が亡くなりました

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I was working from home today. Thank goodness. That was the only way they could get in touch with me.

This afternoon, a police man knocked on my door and delivered me a message on a pink slip announcing that my father had died in San Jose, CA. The slip had a number on it of a police woman in San Jose. When I called, I was told that my dad died in an apartment fire on Sunday.

Here is the link to a news article on it: http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_9310539?source=rss

A 4-alarm fire. Wow. I am still in shock. I currently live in Philadelphia, PA on the other side of the USA. I am taking a plane to San Jose, CA tomorrow to get the process started.

I think I will have a memorial service in CA, one in WA (where many of the relatives live), and one to bury him in NE with my mom (15 years passed) and brother (who died at age 3).

Anyway, there it is. I am parentless. It is quite a shocker, let me tell you. I guess you are never really prepared, huh?






  • I just wanted to let you know my thoughts are with you.
  • I'm sorry to hear that.
  • Oh my god! I saw that fire!

    *hugs trevor*

    I'm so sorry!
    • Oh, you need anything, pick up from the airport, whatever, please don't hesitate to call my cell 408-375-8147
  • I'm so sorry to hear that. :( My thoughts are with you.
  • Wow... I couldn't even begin to imagine the shock. I am really sorry, Trevor.
  • My condolences for your loss.
  • I'm sorry for your loss. :(
  • I didn't know you had a brother who died.

    One of the Rabbis at my yeshiva once said, "People always think of orphans as little kids. But there is no age limit set in halacha (Jewish law). Anyone who loses his or her parents is an orphan." Well, I am quoting as much as I remember from eight years ago.

    That really affected me. No matter how old you get, your parents are still your parents. And losing them is difficult.
  • I'm so sorry, Trevor. You are in my thoughts. *hugs*
  • let me know if you need anything and i'll try to sneak away from fanime this weekend.
  • I'm sorry to hear that Trevor (;_;) My condolences to you *hugs*
  • Sorry to hear that, Trevor. Condolences to you and your family.
  • Dude! I'm so sorry, I just heard the news. Anything I can do, don't hesitate to ask. I'm there for you bro.

    I'm throwin' down some mad Jewish prayers your way.
