My father died
9:32 – My sister Robin just called. Dad passed away. In response to my statement that I wished I could have sat down and talked with him just once that he wasn’t really there for the last week or two so it couldn’t have been. We will leave tomorrow for the Saturday funeral and need to make arrangements for our animals to be cared for while gone. I’m sure I’ll write about this later as writing is a way I have of working through things but right now I just want to work on things and think. We were so close to becoming a father and son again, so close to restoration, so close. Now I wonder what happens next. What happens next regarding my relationship with my brother and the rest of the family. My experience with deaths in families hasn’t shown much good coming out of it and when my grandmother died it seemed to bring out the evil in others as their greed and selfishness became visible. I pray this will not happen.
