John William Triggs  
July 21st 1940 - June 9th, 2006


It's official -- the prints from the house matched the partial from the body. No one is at all surprised, though. I've been on the phone all morning, and at this point I think I'm going to turn the damned thing off for a while, or leave it and go for a hike to clear my head. It's out of juice anyway. I also need to go out and get some food for both me and the cat.

At any rate, enough decisions have been made for the moment (tentative times for service, how arrangements should be handled, etc.). It looks like I'll be sticking around until I leave for Houston for my friend's wedding. After that I'm most likely going to drive to Kansas City and stay until the service that weekend (I'm sending you an email, Paula).
In the mood: crappycrappy

Condolences and hugs. Take care of yourself.

I'm so sorry Doug. Is there a charity or foundation we can donate to in his memory? Please let us know.

I wish you peace in the midst of this tragedy.

Don't know yet, really, but that's one of the things we've been talking about.

Got your message.
Keep your chin up.

It's at least good to have that closure.

Take care of your self and your kitty. Hugs across the e-ways and surges of strength such as I can send them.

Our thoughts are with you.

My thoughts are still with you, too, from the "nothing else I can do from afar" stance. Sad that it had to happen that way, but there's no longer the wondering. Take care and have time for yourself (and the cat). Condolences.

Well, there ain't much to do up close, either, honestly.

Oh no... I'm so sorry.

I don't usually post condolence notes, because normally it's just a politeness, and I'm not good at that. But with you... I really am sorry, and I do care. What happened is horrible, and too sudden -- I know; it's very similar to the way my mother died.

Please let us know when you get back, and please take care of yourself.

Wow, so there you have it. What a week it must have been for you. I hope you get to go on your hike--some time underneath the sky may be good right now. Thinking of you.

I didn't want to say it this way before it was official... but I'm sorry for your loss, and offer my sincere condolences.

Sorry I didn't read this before talking to you earlier this evening.

I'm around here if you need someone to chat with - feel free to call anytime (3AM is ok!) if you need anything. We've got your back!

Just got home from a long trip, and saw this. I'm so sorry about your dad! So sorry your family has to go through this!

I am so very sorry, Doug. *hugs*

I'm out of town this weekend, but I'd be happy to go for a hike at any point, if you think it would help at all. Take care.
Douglas Triggs: quandrydoubt72 on June 14th, 2006 03:32 pm (UTC)
Hiking is good -- especially when I leave the phone at home. Hiking with other people is better. I'd say feel free to get ahold of me after you get back if you have time before I leave on Thursday, but is your leg up to it yet? I'd think it would be healing still.

I was hoping to get something in with some people this weekend, but given the fact that the U.S. is playing a World Cup match early Saturday afternoon, and others of my friends being Australian and Japanese, and so wanting to watch those games on Sunday (not to mention College World Series games all throughout the weekend), I'm probably just going to squeeze something in in the mornings/afternoons as I can. Which is a little disappointing, but ah, well.

Aw, damn, I forgot about my ankle thing (despite the fact I'm still wearing an ace bandage). Shows how excited I am to get back onto the trails, eh? I could certainly do a hike on a relatively easy trail, though, since I am walking around town just fine.

I should be back in town late Tuesday night, but I have to work all day next Wednesday and Thursday. Definitely drop me a line when you get back, though, and we'll hit the trails. Take care.
Douglas Triggs: garden2doubt72 on June 14th, 2006 08:50 pm (UTC)
Well, I'll be back in early July at this point, so you'll have a bit of time to heal up.

(As it is, I'm pretty close to managing to hike two out of every three days as it is over the last few weeks, but most of those are just a quick 1.5 hour jaunt to the top of Green Mountain and back, it being only a few blocks from my apartment. I don't really have time to do anything more ambitious except once or twice a week, at least not if I want to get anything else done.)

I am sorry to hear your loss. I have been thinking of it all day. Take care. Yue
