What's the deal with this new blog? Well, the long and the short of it is that my dad passed away on January 27, 2005. For a long time now I have wanted to start a blog as a journal to remember little things about my dad and about my experiences with him and without him.
I read a book when I was younger about a family of 4 kids who lost their parents. Two of them were older and could take care of the younger ones. As a family, they started a journal of their memories of their parents. Even if it was just a sentence or two about some little memory. They felt it was important, especially for the younger ones, to retain their memories of their parents.
It's been almost 4 years, and it is only now that I can write a little bit before bawling my eyes out. When I think of them, I will write down some memories of my dad. And sometime I will sit down with a box of kleenex and write the story about when he died. You may want to do the same while reading it :)
This blog is mostly for me and my memories. But if you're interested, you're welcome to read. I don't have anything to hide or else I wouldn't do this in blog form. I love my dad and I miss him a lot. If you knew my dad and have a memory you'd like to share on here, please leave comments or email me.
Thanks for reading
