    An online wake seems appropriate, even if I don't know what it means. Rest in peace, angel.

    Copypasta from facebook:


    Faethe.
    bNette.
    Artist.
    Batshit-crazy conspiracy theorist.
    Advocate of all things Orlando.
    Took no shit from no one.
    Cancer victim.
    Friend.
    Rest in peace, dear Rhonda, the fight is over. You won't be forgotten.

    A wake is traditionally a celebration of all the good things the deceased has brought into our lives.

    When I found out how long I have left, a very dear friend sent me the lyrics to a song. It sums up my feelings about Faethe pretty well...

    Huey Lewis & the News - We're Not Here for a Long Time

    There's a party down on the corner, do you want to go?
    They got rhythm, a little blues, and a whole lot of soul
    I don't care what you've got to say
    You're comin' with me anyway
    We're not here for a long time
    We're here for a good time

    I know it's hard makin' a living every day
    And I know how hard you've been workin'
    But now it's time to play
    Tell that wolf waitin' at your door
    He'll just have to wait some more
    We're not here for a long time
    We're here for a good time

    Some say the world is ending
    It might just come to pass
    Ain't no use in pretending
    Tonight could be the last

    Tell the mailman to hold the mail
    Get ready to wag your tail
    We're not here for a long time
    We're here for a good time

    Some say the world is ending
    Who knows if it's true?
    Ain't no use in pretending
    There's not much we can do

    Leave a message for those who call
    We're out havin' us a ball
    We're not here for a long time
    We're here for a good time

    I'll just repost my comment from the other thread:

    When illusion spin her net
    I'm never where I want to be
    And liberty she pirouette
    When I think that I am free
    Watched by empty silhouettes
    Who close their eyes but still can see
    No one taught them etiquette
    I will show another me
    Today I don't need a replacement
    I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Hey" I said "You can keep my things,
    they've come to take me home."

    And now, to hug my wife and kids. Fuck cancer.

    Her ability to go on for readable, engaging paragraphs about something when she was worked up, just amazed me. I would read and re-read some of her posts (with only perfunctory knowledge of the subject) because her writing style made me want to understand. It felt like she wanted people to understand.

    From a thread where she and I were talking about the lil nerdling, and about how going through something like this makes you appreciate your family and friends:

    faethe: ...I completely agree with you about family. They have been my strength. My husband is the other side of that. I don't know if I could be as gracious as he is put in the same situation. He's a blessing through good and bad...He sits with me when I get it. We bring the little computer and my ipod touch to game with. We have lunch and talk. I really get where some people say this is positive experience because it really does bring people together :)

    Reading through some of her old posts and now I'm crying again. You were nothing but absolutely lovely, dear lady, and you will truly be missed.

    When she was first getting chemo (I think she got chemo) and was back posting but a little weak, she was full on the prowl to fight about the U. S. having the best health care system in the world. I wasn't gonna argue any aspect of that with her, but I thought that was an interesting trait of hers: "Yeah, I'll fight you now. Wanna fight about that, too?"

    Truly a series of Florida summer squalls, rage, fury and noise with long periods of calm sunshine in between.

    She'll miss you, too. Important to remember. I think animals like that are a lot more intelligent than we give them credit for. I also think they are capable of love and allow you to know them. And they do miss you. I also think they know when their number is up, just like people. And like with people they are so happy for anyone who make their little lives brighter when things suck.

    Since this is a wake, I'm going to go ahead and post some music.

    So here's to you video

    When first we met, complete awkward strangers
    We did not know if we could be friends
    How soon we've come for to know each other
    And now I know we will meet again

    So here's to you and our time together
    I'll share with you a parting glass
    And I'll bid adieu with some smiles and laughter
    Our time apart will be short and pass

    We've talked of dreams and of new tomorrows
    Of yesterday and its dark despair
    We've had our share of love and sorrow
    And now we part as friends who care

    So here's to you and our time together
    I'll share with you a parting glass
    And I'll bid adieu with some smiles and laughter
    Our time apart will be short and pass

    A long, long road, it lies before me
    And fate will take me where it will
    But through the valleys and over mountains
    I'll not forget, but remember you still

    So here's to you and our time together
    I'll share with you a parting glass
    And I'll bid adieu with some smiles and laughter
    Our time apart will be short and pass

    So here's to you and our time together
    I'll share with you a parting glass
    And I'll bid adieu with some smiles and laughter
    Our time apart will be short and pass

    I posted a vid earlier in the other thread, but the ads were annoying, so:

    Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war,
    just after I'd wiped away his last tear
    I guess he's better off than he was before,
    A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
    I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because he was my only friend
    Those kind of cars don't pass u every day
    I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because I wanted to see him again,
    But sometimes sometimes life ain't always the way...

    Sometimes it snows in April
    Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
    Sometimes I wish life was never ending,
    and all good things, they say, never last

    Springtime was always my favorite time of year,
    A time 4 lovers holding hands in the rain
    Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
    Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain
    He used 2 say so strong unafraid to die
    Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
    No, staring at his picture I realized
    No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

    Sometimes it snows in April
    Sometimes I feel so bad
    Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
    And all good things, they say, never last

    I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there
    I know that he has found another friend
    Maybe he's found the answer 2 all the April snow
    Maybe one day I'll see my Tracy again

    Sometimes it snows in April
    Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
    Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
    But all good things, they say, never last

    All good things that say, never last
    And love, it isn't love until it's past


    \played this for a friend when a mutual friend of ours committed suicide.
    \\Faethe. You will be missed.

    A wake is totally relevant to our Faethe and banniNation's interests. I'll pour out a glass of whiskey in your honor this evening sweet lady.

    Finnegan's Wake

    The night that Paddy Murphy died

    Oh the night that Paddy Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
    Some of the boys got loaded drunk, and they ain't got sober yet;
    As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
    O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

    Chorus:
    That's how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
    That's how they showed their honour and their pride;
    They said it was a sin and shame and they winked at one another
    And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

    As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner pouring out her grief
    Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street
    They went into an empty room and a bottle of whiskey stole
    They put the bottle with the corpse to keep that whiskey cold

    About two o'clock in the morning after empty'ing the jug
    Doyle rolls up the ice box lid to see poor Paddy's mug
    We stopped the clock so Mrs. Murphy couldn't tell the time
    And at a quarter after two we argued it was nine.

    They stopped the hearse on George Street outside Sundance Saloon
    They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon
    They went up to the graveyard, so holy and sublime
    Found out when they got there, they'd left the corpse behind!

    Oh the night that Paddy Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
    Some of the boys got loaded drunk and they ain't been sober yet;
    As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
    O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play

    So, so sorry to hear about this. When Hospice was mentioned I knew her condition was grave, but I didn't expect the end to come so quickly.

    Non-hospice medical staff are usually completely full of shit as far as prognostication. They have trouble admitting defeat.

    The doctor told me between 2 and 3 months.

    It actually came 3 days later, and the bastards just cold called at 5 AM with the news.

    intentionally left blank: Faethe in a nutshell

    Bullshit. There is no hurricane. -pop-

    Man did she shut me down in the Katrina thread... then I schooled her on tornadoes in hurricanes, then we posting buddies.

    She kinda reminded me of a tough old marine sometimes. She'll kick the shit out of you in an argument, but as long as you fought back she respected you. If you just rolled over she didn't have time for you.

    Be passionate. Go big or go home, and don't post bullshit or lies. That's how I will keep the Faethe.

    faethe: I believe ALL people deserve respect and dignity even if they have done nothing to deserve it. Perhaps that is my version of Christianity. Christ says this - we are all family, even if we hate each other. That's a very hard concept to live by because there are people I would in fact spit on. But my faith tells me to find compassion for them, anyway.

    ...

    thank you so much for your good wishes :) This is the internets and words on a screen but they give me strength. Like I am not 'away from the fold'. That kind of lonliness seems to be a part of bad sickness, feeling like the world is spinning around you and that people are going on with life, and all you can do is watch, and remember what that felt like. It's a melancholy feeling. This helps press that back.

    She was also a summer squall, florida style. They explode very quickly -- they visibly grow in front of you -- and when they're over, there's a cool breeze and then warm sun, without a trace of the storm.

    From one of the "everything is worse in Orlando" threads. I'm really going to miss her silliness.

    osirisothedead: Poor faethe. :-)
    untrustworthy: She's tough. She can take it.
    quinblake: Of course she can. She's in Orlando, after all.
    faethe: Wow. I'm famous :p
    cranky bastard: You've been famous for quite a long time, m'dear. This is just the latest wave.
    faethe: Oh. I'm touched. In a bad place :p
    osirisothedead: That happens a lot in Orlando.

    My grandfather was in and out of Hospice for 3 months before he finally passed. 23 years later my grandmother was there for 7 or 10 days after being moved from the nursing home to the hospital.

    The strange coincidence, to me anyway, was that the Hopsice where she was used to be the maternity floor where I was born many years before.

    In our experience, the hospice doctors were always more accurate than the non-hospice people.

    Understand that we weren't expecting absolute accuracy, but in one case it was a hospice doctor who correctly made the call that my father was too close to the end to move from the hospital to hospice, and that's not the sort of timeline we were hearing from the hospital doctors. One asshole neurologist at the hospital was even still advocating brain surgery.

    I wrote a piece for our next album that was intended as a way to conceptualize transition from one phase to the next.

    It's an instrumental. And not in final, production-ready form, but what the hell.

    I dedicate it to you and yours, Faethe.
