Stuff.

I’m one week removed from the seven month anniversary from my dad’s passing.  I wish I had documented all that I (we) had gone through during the journey from the time he got sick until now. I didn’t. The bottom line is that I didn’t know how strong I was until I had to be. What I wouldn’t give to have my parents back. I have several friends that have lost A parent but only a few that have lost both parents. Unless you have lost both you really can’t imagine what it’s like to have no one fulfilling that role.  Even though my dad had been very sick since the summer of 2009 he was still physically present. He still tried to parent in some ways when he was able. The times were few and far between but the gesture was priceless. My parents were amazing folks.  Close to my heart and always in my thoughts…
