In Memoriam


48 hours ago I was tired, overworked, stressed. Today I’m utterly devastated. 

My father is gone. Died. Passed on. 

He’s not going to answer the phone, or type a misspelled email with two fingers, or tell me he loves me. 

I know they say time heals all wounds, but I don’t see how. I can’t fathom a world where I get older, where time marches on, and he’s not in it. 

And yet the clock struck midnight, and we–the living–began a new day. A day he will never see. 

He was a good man. A great man. 

He was my best friend. 

He was my daddy. Is my daddy. 

But he’s gone.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Gentle hugs to you. Remember to be nice to yourself. This is a wound that will never fully heal but it will get easier. Trust me, I’ve been there.
