Friday and Saturday Update

Patrick’s Last Meal

I always say these letters are short summaries, yet they are never short, nor do they sufficiently summarize.

Still, I shall try again.

Yesterday (Friday the 28th) was a full day. Carol deposited me at Patrick’s apartment just as the clock rolled over to this milestone on the calendar, but I didn’t get to sleep until after 3 AM. Some delays were routine – dig through my bags for the morning clothes, shower to scrub off the travel grime, answer text and e-mail messages, decide where to sleep – but other delays were less expected.

Nachruf (Deutsch)

Er würde zweifellos Stimmung finden, auf der Kulturseite unter einem Foto von einer oben ohne Schönheit erwähnt zu werden.

This is the obituary posted in the 27 April – 3 May 2017 issue (number 17) of Mallorca Magazin. It’s found on page 39.

He would no doubt find humor in being mentioned on the Culture page below a photo of a topless beauty.

It is with sadness I must report that my father Patrick Meadows passed away on 22 April 2017.

On behalf of my sisters and I and Stephanie’s family, thank you for your kind thoughts in this difficult time.

Another Drive for Patrick and Ivonne

Sent just after midnight on 15 Apr ’17.

Today Patrick and Ivonne went for another drive. He said that his back hurts whether sitting in the car sitting at home so he might as well get out and enjoy the countryside.

Unfortunately this is a religious holiday coming up and many of the small towns that they went through were crowded and sometimes even had streets closed off for townspeople to dress up like a  son of a god and parade through the streets.

There’s not much else to report. We just had a nice long chat and “talked story” (as we say in Hawai’i.)

Next week Ivonne will not be able to spend as much time with him because of family obligations, but she’ll make sure that he’s squared away with food and everything while he’s alone so he’ll be fine.
