My brother Joe passed on Saturday night

A friend found him today on his couch at home, and our younger brother called me.

Think a good thought for him, my friends. He was 71 and it was COPD and emphysema that got him in the end. We remaining siblings are grieving from SoCal to New York state and up to Oregon, where he had lived for over 50 years. We donít know when we will be able to be together again, but I told our younger brother that from the first time I heard Liam Clancy sing The Parting Glass, I knew that song would be Joeís elegy. So he pulled it up on You Tube and we cried together.

12. I added the song to the OP. I have an unopened bottle of Black Bush I've been saving...

This seems like the time to open it and put a glass on my altar, by the Triple Brigid. Time enough after sundown for me to take my share.

Canít seem to stop crying. Thank you all.

Losing a brother is hard. Please take it real easy and be kind to yourself for a while.

This is a beautiful song. My Great Grandmother was a Clancy, a cousin of these guys. I sadly never knew her well enough to learn more. A beautiful tribute.

Be well. May he rest in peace and may you find peace in time.

149. We grew up on their music, and learned just about everything they sang...

We were way the hell and gone living on Oíahu in the Ď50s and Ď60s, a beautiful place to be sure, but in all seriousness, the only thing to tell us we were Irish besides Mom was the music of the Clancy Brothers. We didnít even know we looked Irish, which it turns out we surely do.

I had the great good fortune about 10 years ago to take a musical tour of Ireland with Robbie OíConnellís Celtica Tours. As you probably know, heís a younger cousin of the Clancy Bros. I hope he and his tour business survive the bad times we are living through, as Iíd love to go again someday.

Now thereís a thought to smile on.

75. I'm so sorry for your Heartbreaking

Loss, Hekate!

We lost our dear sister, Mary, the day after Christmas last year unexpectedly & shockingly. She would have been 73 on February 10, 2020.

We were able to all go to Los Angeles from all over the Mainland and Hawaii to be with her daughter & her son who came in from Florida. I'm really sorry you all can't be together now.. Hopefully someday soon you can all get together in person to hug and celebrate Joe's life!

In the meantime you have Liam Clancy's beautiful, poignant song to bring together.

Oh, he had such sweethearts in his wild and woolly youth. He never married, but two of those ladies stayed in his life until he was an old man.

And he could tell such tales, when he had a glass in his hand.

we take them with us, you know. we carry a part of them with us for the rest of our journey here. and they carry a part of us when they go. love never dies -- it goes on, and on, and on. and with that we are forever connected. and together.

that's a beautiful, sorrowful song--i never heard it before. thank you for sharing it, along with your grief. i'm crying for you as well as for me as i remember and miss those i have lost from this world.

145. Here are the lyrics to that lovely song:

Of all the money that e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm I've ever done
Alas, it was to none but me

And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be to you all
So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay
But since it fell into my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
Fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
La ra la ra la la
La lala lala la la
La ra lala la la
La la la lala la la

But since it fell into my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
So fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
Good night and joy be to you all

148. Thank you all so much for your heartfelt words. You have really helped, by letting me ...

...say some of the things I would have said if I were not so alone just now.

Iím doing okay, thanks. I needed yesterday to sit with it, and all of you helped, maybe more than you know.

I got to talk to our sis today (New York state, Iím in SoCal) and we agreed the hardest part is not being able to be together until God knows when. When the day comes, I think just the three of us remaining sibs and our spouses will fly to Oregon to lift a glass and scatter his ashes, along with his lifelong friends.

The death wasnít unexpected, as he got within a hair of dying last November, but it is still sad and will remain sad ó itís a break in the link to our shared past. At 71 he was a year younger than me, and Iím the eldest of we four.
