Hug Your Dad
November 10, 2009
...and way earlier
Grieved to say...my Dad just died, not three weeks before his 88th birthday. Burial was Friday.
Couldn't help scattering some memorial thoughts around the Internet:
"What a Dad I Had," MaryJanesFarm.org, "Suburban Farmgirl" post
"A Parent's Death Is Never Expected, Even When It Is," Caring.com, Caring Currents post
"Should Kids Attend a Funeral?" The Daily WD, Woman's Day "Momfidence" post
Ironically, I wrote "6 Reason's a Parent's Death Is a Special Kind of Loss" for Caring about a week before Dad died -- having no idea it was that imminent.
So weird to be an orphan...
