Welcome to the Rollercoaster of Shock and Grief

Me and Dad at my wedding on Halloween, 2008.

“Hey Mom! How’s it going?” I asked, as I promptly answered the phone, surprised to get the call.

“Well, not so good… He’s dead.”

Enter profound shock and grief.

It was a month ago today that he died. This has been the hardest thing I have ever endured.

I’m still shocked! I can’t believe he’s gone. He should’ve been around 10 more years!

He and mom were supposed to come up here to the PNW to spend two weeks in this beautiful climate. We were gonna complain about how he talks too much. We were gonna cook delicious things together!

But he’s gone.

He’s gone and I’ll never see him again. And the way he dies is such a tragedy! I’ll have to talk more about that later. Right now I’m just riding the Rollercoaster of Shock and Grief…
