My dad passed away suddenly 3 years ago.
I can’t believe 3 years have passed.
Now there are 4 of us (me, mom, and my two sisters).
It’s affected each of us in different ways. I had never imagined that our family would change in that way at that time.
That Mom would lose her life partner and dearest friend. And us our Dad. And without time to prepare for that possibility.
It feels hard for us to share our grief with one another (even though we share our love for Dad), it’s such an individual thing.
It’s a reminder that life is short. Anything can happen at any time.
Not in a glum way. But in the way that wakes you up and reminds you to live. :)
We all feel deep grief and loss in our lives.
Yet the experience can feel so lonely — many experiences are.
To anybody that’s experienced grief and loss, I send you my love and care.
And my hope that you can care for whatever parts of you that need healing.
Here are some of Eva and my favorite photos of Dad.
