My Dad just died 1/20 and was interred 1/26. Now that the hurried preparations for the service are completed I'm left with time to feel & it hurts. I have a 9 year old and am trying to stay positive for her, but sometimes I'm just so damned sad. I've been looking at pictures, taking walks, and writing, I know Dad is at peace now, no more pain, loss of dignity, & dependency on others. We were blessed that we had him for more than a year after a catastrophic stroke that left him changed, but still smiling & determined. He never gave up. I will honor my father's memory by living my "best life" through service, kindness & consideration. I will honor my relationships AND HELP SUPPORT MY BROTHER & MOTHER IN ANY WAY i CAN.
