Sadness and Struggle One Year Ago

One year ago, today (July 28, 2019) my family was to have met around 12:15 to have lunch together at a nearby Wendy’s Hamburgers. What happened instead is that my dad would get sick and went to the hospital for the final time before he died on August 24th at home. His time in the hospital was very tough on him and all of us. After exhaustive treatments of medicine which included dialysis it was decided he should go home to let nature take its course. My friends, I wish we would have been able to have lunch instead of going to the hospital. It was that month that changed me and my family forever. I miss my dad.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss Tony. You honor his memory regularly by treating others with the kindness he must have shared with you. It’s obvious in your uplifting posts and thoughtful interactions with others. I’ll bet he is proud of you.

  2. I’m so sorry for the loss of your father. I know it’s hard to get together with our families right now, especially going out to eat but as soon as things return to, “normal” we should all try to do that more often.
