Death Season

It occurred to me tonight... it was 10 years since my Dad's fatal heart attack on August 12th. He remained "alive" for three weeks as a mechanically breathing corpse, and he was finally allowed to leave us on September 3rd. 10 full years gone next week.

Sometimes it seems like yesterday. Sometimes it seems a lifetime ago. Amazing things have happened since then, and he would have intensely enjoyed them.

I miss him.

Sudden dark thoughts are no fun. They will pass and be replaced by sweeter ones. Peace.

It is hard for me to forget because it puts a downer end to my birthday. I still have the binder with all the emails. I haven't looked at it in years. It would be too upsetting. Some day I'll take it out if Ian has questions. On 9/11 I kept thinking that if he were alive, the events would have just killed him. However, I think he would be proud to see what you have made of your life, and he would have just loved playing at math and science with Ian.
