We buried my dad today.
To be honest, it was both expected and unexpected. He had end stage cancer but we really thought we had a few more weeks or even months.
For his sake I am so very, very glad that he is no longer in pain and has energy again.
For his sake I am glad that he is in heaven with his precious savoir.
For our sake, I miss him. I wanted him to meet his other grandchildren who are yet to be born. I wanted him to dance with my mother at my daughter’s wedding. I wanted him to call me up a few more hundred times to just say “hi.”
But I would not have asked him to live one more hour in pain.
Posting may be somewhat sparse in the next few weeks but I will be back soon-ish.
