In Memorandum: Georg Oscar Furuknap

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law!

My father, Georg Oscar Furuknap, d.o.b. November 22, 1944, died this morning, on June 30, 2014. May he be granted the accomplishment of his will.

I didn’t know my father recently and we haven’t spoken in more than a decade. We barely spent time together for a number of reasons. Those reasons are irrelevant today and shall forever be forgotten.

Today, I celebrate the passing of my father. He lived his life as he desired, bearing the consequences of his choices, whether good or bad. I cannot imagine he really regretted anything he did.

I also cannot imagine he wanted me or anyone to grieve his passing so instead I choose to celebrate that he has accomplished everything he ever will. I will drink and be merry in his name and know that if there is an afterlife, he will make hell a bit better or heaven a bit worse. Or vice versa.

Here’s to Georg Oscar Furuknap: Skål!

Love is the law, love under will.

Norwegian translation:

Gjør hva du vil skal være hele loven!

Min far, Georg Oscar Furuknap, f. 11. november, 2944, døde i dag morges, den 30. juni 2014. Måtte han sjenkes fullførelsen av hans vilje.

Jeg kjente ikke min far i det siste og vi har ikke snakket på over et tiår. Vi brukte knapt tid sammen av forskjellige grunner. De grunnene er ikke viktige i dag og skal for alltid glemmes.

I dag feirer jeg min fars bortgang. Han levde det livet han ønsket og tok konsekvensene av sine valg, enten de var gode eller dårlige. Jeg kan ikke forestille meg at han noen gang angret noe han gjorde.

Jeg kan heller ikke forestille meg at han ønsket at jeg eller noen skulle sørge over hans bortgang, så i stedet velger jeg å feire at han har oppnådd alt han kommer til å oppnå. Jeg skal drikke og være glad i hans navn og jeg vet at om det er et liv etter døden så kommer han til å gjøre helvete litt bedre eller himmelen litt verre. Eller visa versa.

Til Georg Oscar Furuknap: Skål!

Kjærlighet er loven, kjærlighet under vilje.
