A Grief Observed...

Yesterday marked the 7th anniversary of my father's passing. Time is only beginning to heal make the loss less painful, yet, the path of grieving has been enlightening. Tonight I tried to catch some of the feelings of lonliness, and insight in this little sketch. I've blogged a few more of my feelings on my writing blog.
Can you relate?

What a loving and touching tribute to honor the memory of your father. You so movingly celebrate the importance of his life with your gift of art. A real treasure!

11 years in August for my dad, 19 in July for my mom... and even tho time has dulled the chronic ache, in my moments of greatest joy the loss of not being able to share it with them will cause an acute pain that still takes me by surprise.

Thank you for sharing your letter and your drawing, Justin, and especially for sharing your wisdom. I'm sorry for your loss.
