Today would have been my dad's 65th birthday. He died in Dec. 2004 from colon cancer. I still miss him but I know that he accepted his diagnosis and was only "sick" for a couple of weeks. Mostly, I remember him healthy and happy and just being himself. It took awhile. The first six months all I could remember was his last days.. his last minutes, but that doesn't clog my head so much anymore. Grieving is letting go and rejoicing and celebrating the connections and gifts you shared with the people in your life.
