Today is the day; 1 year since my dad died. RIP.
Sorry about the anniversary.
I still miss my dad, who died in the late summer of 08, but looking back, it was probably for the best. He was stuck in a hospital, not able to be himself, and just oblivious to all but that last great battle we all will fight and lose.
Is hard this time of year, but remember all of the fun stuff, give him a salute, and fight the good battle to do as he taught you. Smile in his memory and be the man for others he was to you.
My best bud, and hope you manage a good holiday.
