When you passed away on Dec 14, 2021, it was a bit of a shock. I went to see Dottie and we spent a couple of hours talking and sharing and as I left, I felt like I would be seeing you again. The next day Dottie and I made the arrangements and as I said my goodbyes to her, I imagined that you were just resting and I would still see you again. I catch myself as my mind wanders when I start thinking I will see you again. In truth, I find this incredibly peculiar – maybe it’s your way of letting me know that I’ll be seeing you again and I find this incredibly comforting. Thank you for the memories – we had some interesting times for sure! I love you Dad. Psst… stick around please. I’m not quite ready to let you go. ❤️
