Forty-three years ago today

my parents married. That is, this would be their anniversary if not for my father's unexpected death 13 March. I wish I could be in Illinois with her, to make her laugh with stories and put my arm around her shoulders when she cries. 


  1. This really touched my heart. I know how tough it is to live far away form you family, especially at times like this. xx

    So Sad. I don't think we ever get over such deaths and disappearances, we just learn to live without them and life is made that much the less better, Auden Wrote

    So long as we consent to live like sheep
    And never mention those who disappear
