|Thanks for all the kind words...
In many ways I feel very conflicted, of course often I still cry thinking about him, and losing him, but at the same time I don't feel any regrets or any "if only"s. Prior to his passing on, my sisters who had also grown up with him and I talked about making him a bucket list, but there was not very much we could think of to put on there. He lived a very long life and experienced many many things and was happy.
So in ways him leaving when it was precisely his own time in itself grants comfort. He was neither sick nor injured, simply old and spent.
The hurt is still there, that I won't see him again in this lifetime. But I am ever grateful to have had the opportunity to have met him and for the undying inspiration he gave not only me but my entire family.
