I spent some time yesterday going over my dad's blog, having wanted to re-read a poem I'd posted there some time ago. *gulp* got all choked up, but in a good way.
I heartily recommend a memorial blog when somebody great dies. It is a good way to put something out there in the world that is a little cloud of memory and photos and stories - like a time machine you can hop back and revisit... A very visceral experience if you happened to know the guy.
And if you didn't know him, well, my dad was pretty awesome. And we really loved him.
And we took good care of him. And it happens, losing people you care about. There's no way around it.
But, I'll tell you.
It's nice to be able to take a second between projects at work and spend a few minutes reading about that special time for our family when we helped Dad do his work.
