Thirty Eight Years Ago.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Thirty eight years ago today my Dad died. He had been OK but then had a heart attack. He was in the hospital and I saw him but he called in the middle of the night and said he was dying and he was right. I have never forgiven myself for not being there. The reality is medicine has gotten better but people are not any more or less attentive. 

I learned that there is nothing I can do about the past so I honor my Father by living my best life and hoping he would be proud of me. Thirty eight years ago is a long time, but in many ways it was just like yesterday.

The loss of a parent or parents is difficult on most of us.  I look back at my own father's death in October 1966 (52 years ago), and my mother's in September 1975 (48 years ago), and wish I could have had more time with them.  I took for granted they'd always be there, and they simply weren't.

Most people regret not spending more time with our parents when we had the opportunity. I'm among them.

How well we know that time passes ...and doesn't...and know that your life lived as your Dad would have loved it...is your best gift to his memory.

Sheila,

I hear you, and I lost my dad in 1985.  He died at our home in Los Angeles.  He was only 66.  And he would have been a 100 this month had he lived.  We had great times together!  I would have liked more, but he was done!  A

So sad. 

I am so blessed to still have my parents. My dad turned 83 in May and Mom will be 80 next month.
