Have you lost a parent?
Today is the 2 year anniversary of my dad’s death. He had lung and liver cancer. It was the most traumatic experience of my life watching him die. Some days I miss him so much I can’t stand it, and some days are just fine. Certain things trigger memories for me: the smell of sawdust he was a carpenter, guitars and classic rock… Some days I just need to talk to him. Days when I know nobody else would understand.
So back to the original question, have you lost a parent? How do you like to remember him or her? What triggers emotions and memories for you? I’d like to hear your stories.
