I forgot to mention that we don’t only “dance” at home. I call it dancing but it’s more swaying. We are more like Jerry Springer or Wayne Newton Dancing With The Stars type! LOL
Anyhoo we were at the Irish Rover Friday. We feel safe there because everyone knows us and they have been so incredibly supportive to us we know we will just be loved there and no BS.
SO Paul, one of the cutie patootie owners, was on Friday night. He played Danny Boy on the sax at Andrew’s service. He played it again Friday night and after he started I knew Andrew wanted us to dance. I asked Martin and much to my surprise he said “YES!” Talk about shocked! He knew Andrew wanted us to dance too.
Again, I think Andrew wanted us to, like he did at the service, to show people how much his parents love each other and that is how we are getting through this. As we danced I kept my eyes closed so I could feel Andrew dancing with us. I knew he was on my left side. During that time it felt like it was only the 3 of us there. As intimate as a moment like that is, I knew it was important to share it with the packed place because it would impact people in a positive way. And it did as everyone at our table was crying! Mission accomplished! :-D
It was sad for me as well as I noticed the donation jar for Andrew’s service expenses for his Ascension. Thanks Junie for doing that!. I remember when Andrew was in there the last time, when he came home for 6 days and he was all excited about the posters with his name on it for the benefit for him. He was feeling a bit famous! And now it’s for funeral expenses. It just made me sad.
I am just grateful to have The Irish Rover in our lives! They have been so good to us! Whatever we needed done there were people to help! Tommy and Junie helped us with Wolfie and are helping us with our sinks, which appears to be a bigger issue than we thought!Â They haven’t forgotten about us since Andrew ascended! We’re still dealing with the after math and they know that. SO thank you for being there!
Barb is another one who organized a benefit for Andrew and the bandÂ StrykkerÂ played at. My niece is organizing a fund raiser for us now. There are so many names that deserved to be mentioned here! We are so blessed! Notice the UP moment! :-D
IT’S ALL GOOD!
