"mom passed on January 6"


My condolences - losing a parent is a terrible loss even if expected. I recall the year my father
passed- 1997 - and a few days later remember dreaming that he walked into our bedroom.
He told me,
"Whatever you do, don't ever forget!"

I still remember sitting up in the bed, shocked and thoroughly amazed - but I do not to this day
remember a single thing he said to not forget.

Perhaps I would be a better man if I only could remember something - but instead I can only do
what I can.

Perhaps that is enough - perhaps not.
