My Dad passed away on May 18th due to complications from an E-coli infection. You always think you have time. Then it’s suddenly too late and you’re left with the wish that you had taken the time… At least I had talked to him on Mother’s day.
It’s still hard to believe it. It will take some time before it sinks in and feels real.
It’s ironic that fear of covid taking my parents was finally past after inoculation.
He was a good man, who busted his butt for us 8 kids, working two jobs sometimes to make ends meet. We didn’t always see eye to eye but hard feelings were rare and he loved all of us very much. I can’t fathom what my mother is feeling after 57 years of marriage.
