A Good Life, A Good Death: What my parents taught me by example - WCNC

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
My parents introduced us as kids to the joys of the sliding rocks in the mountains of North Carolina, God’s own waterslides, smelling of mountain laurel and rhododendron. And my sister and I in turn introduced our kids to the bust-your-butt ride culminating in a freezing plunge.It was easy for them to talk to me about money and hard to talk about sex.It is easy for me to talk to my kids about sex, and hard to talk to them about money.But none of us ever minded talking about death. Mom asked me and my sister to divvy up tables, chairs and what-not before she died because she wanted no squabbling.She took me around the walled family graveyard near Leesburg, Georgia, rimmed with bamboo trees and conch shells and explained that she wanted it kept up after her death.So when their deaths came, I knew what to do. I knew because they told me. They told me in conversations. They told me because I asked. And they finally told me in a legal document called an “advance health care directive.”It was one of the most thoughtful things they ever did in a life filled with consideration for others.Because it meant my sister and I didn’t have to worry or fuss or debate or wonder what mom and dad wanted. They had spelled it out.She wanted to be cremated. You can tell by her own handwritten initials, NMW, Nell Martin Watson, right there on the notarized form. He left it up to me as his legal designee. I talked it over with my sister and we placed their cremated remains in the same double urn, separate chambers.My mother was proud Scots-Irish. She could pinch a penny with the best of them. I told my kids that and they called me a racist! Maybe. But the last thing she would have wanted was a big expensive send off.They wrote their own obituaries, beginning decades ago, typing on onion-skin paper and making edits in pencil until the crinkly paper tore. Four, no six, no seven grandchildren. They included things I would have left out (committees, a resume in past tense) and left out things I would have included (he picked up a few bucks one night ushering at the premiere of ...

A half-century later, man seeks details of father's death in Tampa -

Wed, Feb 8, 2012
Crys, Robin and Teresa. An investigation found that Workman had picked a fight with Harold Wicks, then 72, the previous day on a dock near what is now the Laurel Street Bridge. "I think I'll throw this old S.O.B. in the drink," Workman reportedly said as he approached Wicks. But it was Workman who ended up in the water. Wicks and a witness, Burnett Albert Peters, then 36, were jailed on drunkenness charges. A small funeral was held and Workman was buried in an unmarked grave in Orange Hill Cemetery. • • • What Christlieb gathered about his father suggested a man at odds with himself. On one side was an adoring husband and amiable friend who worked hard and did what he could to help others. On the other, a troubled alcoholic whose demons created an abusive home life for his wife and children. "Despite most of what I've been told and learned, I believe deep down that Bob was probably a decent man," Christlieb said. "He just had a lot of problems, mostly brought on by his drinking as well as whatever demons he was dealing with, possibly from childhood." Christlieb, an editor at the Dallas Morning News, plans to write a book about his efforts to learn more about his birth family. He suspects that his mother gave him up to protect him from his father. They were divorced by the time he was born. His siblings never even knew of his existence until he tracked them down. • • • Christlieb talked with owners of the Orange Hill Cemetery and located the spot where his father is buried. He hopes to visit it. He talked with Bill Hodgin, 86, a Bradenton man who was onboard the Seastar, the boat that pulled Workman's body to shore. Hodgin had been vacationing with his wife and two friends aboard the charter vessel. Christlieb tried to find relatives of Wicks and Peters, both deceased, or others who knew the t...

Warren Hellman Dies at 77; Ex-Lehman President and Music Festival Founder

Wed, Dec 21, 2011
World Bank and a business-school classmate of Mr. Hellman’s. “He had the confidence and access that comes along with being from a prominent family, but never rested on his laurels and lived the life he wanted.” Frederick Warren Hellman was born on July 25, 1934, in Manhattan. He was not, as many assumed, an heir to the Hellman’s mayonnaise fortune; his pedigree was in the finance and rag trades. His father was Marco F. Hellman, an investment banker. His mother was the former Ruth Koshland, whose relatives were prosperous wool merchants in California. His great-grandfather, Isaias W. Hellman, was a Jewish immigrant from Bavaria who became one of California’s leading financiers and served as president of Wells Fargo Nevada National Bank, which later became Wells Fargo. Mr. Hellman grew up in San Francisco and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, where he played varsity water polo. After graduating from Harvard Business School in 1959, he joined Lehman Brothers, where his uncle, Frederick L. Ehrman, was a senior executive and later chairman. An aggressive dealmaker at Lehman, Mr. Hellman earned the nickname Hurricane Hellman. At 26, he became the youngest partner in the firm’s history, and in 1973, at 39, president. The firm’s partners ousted Mr. Ehrman that year, and Mr. Hellman had to deliver the news to his uncle. In Ken Auletta’s 1985 book, “Greed and Glory on Wall Street: The Fall of the House of Lehman,” Mr. Hellman is quoted as saying that he couldn’t recall the expression on Mr. Ehrman’s face because he had stared at his uncle’s feet for the entire conversation. (He clearly remembered that Mr. Ehrman’s socks were gray and bunched around his ankles, however.) After leaving Lehman in 1977, Mr. Hellman moved to... (New York Times)
