My Father's Obituary

I wrote this for my father and it was published here. I think it is the worst thing I ever wrote because I never thought I would be writing my father's obituary.

HELFRECHT, Gary, of Richmond, Va., died Saturday, August 21, 2010 at his beloved beach house. "Brutally handsome" and "full of everything" from love to life. He had a successful career, a loving family and an adoring wife. He is survived by his wife, Rudi Artemis; daughters, Kristen, Jessica and Courtney; his brother, ...Bill; and six beautiful grandchildren. Gary Helfrecht was a member of the Harley Owners Group of Richmond and everyone's "favorite person." Gary will be missed by us all. He was the most wonderful husband and father in the history of the universe. The family will receive friends and family on Tuesday, August 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Bliley's- Central Chapel, 3801 Augusta Ave., and where a memorial service will be held on Wednesday, August 25 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Gary's name to the American Heart Association .
