My dad died in May 2020. It was so horrible. He was so senile in the end. He was 89. I didn't get the chance to say goodbye. He had to live in a nursing home. After we checked him in we lost him within 2 weeks. I was only able to visit him there once before he was dying. Thanks to Covid, we all wore masks. His voice was muffled. It was the last time I heard him speak in person and I couldn't understand a word. Well, it only got worse. He left me a voicemail. I couldn't understand a word of it. My mom said he'd been holding the phone upside down lately, and he'd speak into the wrong end of the phone. I would give everything I own to hear that message. He died. We never got the chance to communicate again.

It is an honor to feel that much, to have loved that much. It teaches you compassion, gratitude, resilience, and the importance of grabbing life by…See More
