You may have noticed I have not been posting as much lately. I've been dealing with a personal and difficult life change. My dad passed a few weeks ago.
I thought about making a separate video, but I think the video of my remembrance of dad captures my relationship with him.
Grief and living with it is in an important mental skill. I feel surprisingly OK at times and others not so much.
I will miss him when my son plays his varsity hockey games this year as well as my aunt sue. Fortunately, I have many people who have had my back and taken care of me. Thanks to all who have.
So long, dad.
