This September is a reminder of the loss of my father. Has the pain of loss eased? Just a little. I’m reminded of the journeys to the hospital and the Nursing Home seeing him in excruciating pain and the feeling of helplessness. I find comfort knowing the pain is over. I’m left with good memories of my father being a constant in my life – maybe the only one who truly understood me.
