Father's Day

This is the tenth Father's Day since my father passed away. I can't describe the hollowness I feel to anyone whose father is living. My mother is away, in part to take her mind off memories. When I write about my father, I feel I'm understanding him, something that once seemed so difficult.

"My Father's Last Breath"
"More Than Anything"
"Dad & I"

I feel that way about my mother--my father is still with us in body at least.

Great words, Gerald. I suppose I'm still very lucky to have my parents around. I posted a photo of my dad and I on my blog today. He's a great man.

Regards, David.
