Condolence From: Olga Else Isa Jurdens
Condolence: Dads Eulogy
Throughout this week, whenever I would sit down to start writing this, I'd have to stop myself because it all started to feel real again. I kept pushing it out of my mind because I wanted to keep thinking that he was just a 10-minute drive away. I realized exactly one week after dad had passed that I can't keep pushing it aside because it is real, only now instead of him being 10 minutes away, he is with me all of the time.
I will never stop saying with all of the pride in my heart that my father was Karlheinz Jurdens & I will never let people forget his name. He was the happiest man I knew, he never had a single care in the world, if something bothered him he would address it heads on and then continue moving forward. He spent his life traveling, making memories for himself, and enjoying every single thing he did. From building his own company from the base up to making sure he never missed table tennis nights every Thursday. Everything he did he put himself first and I think a lot of us tend to forget that in life all we really have is ourselves, and we try too hard to think about what other people will think or want and we end up making ourselves unhappy. I've learned from all of this that if you do what is truly best for yourself, those who really love you will accept it and be by your side the whole way through.
My dad has shown me so much love and respect even if it was in his own special way and sometimes when I was younger I didn't understand it. He showed me that love by making sure I had my bedtime snack of a cheese string cut up and grapes cut in half every night, that I was tucked into bed, or making sure I didn't go to bed without hearing a bed time story first. By always pushing me to be the best soccer player I could be, making sure I was always at my games & practices on time, or that that certain coach or scout would "be sure to keep an eye on 22" & most importantly, for always being my number one fan. But the number one way he showed he cared was by making sure we always had a roof over our heads, food on the table, someone to hug if we really needed it, and by never ever lying to us.
I will never forget all that he has taught me that at one point seemed like useless facts or knowledge but now I realize that one day I will teach my kids the same things. Like how farmers can tell winter is coming by looking at the little forests on their fields and being able to see straight through the trees. Or how the male cardinals are the most beautiful, brightest red because they want to show off for all of the "hot mama" cardinals. Or that a professional soccer player in the bundasliga runs at least 15km a game so I "better get on my toes". All of those little things that I hope one day I will be able to teach my own kids.
Now more than ever, I finally realize the importance of making good memories and that even if something seems like it's annoying or a pain in the moment it could end up being one of the best memories you share with someone. I wish that I could be woken up at 6am on sundays to the sound of formula one cars driving in a circle 100times once more. Or to be woken up early saturday morning to go to the farmers market for 5 hours and only buy eggs, meat and berries. Or to spend an entire day picking strawberries and then spending the entire next day making hundreds of jars to last us until next season. Those little things are what I am realizing as I get older that really stick in the end.
I hope that one day I will grow up to be half the person that my dad was, to live without regrets or fears. To be able to look back on my life and say "I made it where I am today because I worked my butt off every single step of the way and I don't owe a single thing to anyone expect myself". I already see parts of him in myself. I see it when I get mad at my boyfriend for not saying please or thankyou to the drive through worker, or when I spend an hour going through weekly flyers looking for the best deals even though I have never bought groceries before in my entire life. Or how I will fight anyone if they try to get me to buy any summer shoe other than Birkenstocks because they are the superior sandal. But the main thing that I see of him in myself is the fact that I have the ability to put my heart and soul into something once I begin & I will see it through until the very end and all I hope is that he is up there looking down on all of us and that he is proud of who we have become and everything that we are. Thank you dad, for helping me find my true passion which is soccer, for giving me the opportunity to travel the world, for always letting me go visit my family whenever I needed or wanted, and more than anything thank you for teaching me and making me understand the meaning of the words respect & responsibility and that is something that I will be forever grateful for.
If there is one thing that I would like everyone here to take away from this, it's that you shouldn't ever be scared to pick up the phone and make that call because the person who you're calling probably misses you as much as you miss them. Life it too short to try hold onto grudges or to try to prove a point, because one day when you finally prove that point, you will leave everyone behind and you don't get to see the impact that it really made on others.
I will never understand why you had to wait for me to leave the room papa, & I will never forgive myself for wanting to leave not knowing that those were going to be your final moments, but I will never forget you, and from the bottom of my heart I love you dad, forever and two days, now I really win. Thank you again for everything you have ever taught me and for always supporting me & being by my side through everything. I hope I made you proud, Bye daddy.
