Author Notes
This is what I imagine my dad's passing would have felt like had I been there in the room. I hope to invoke emotion, yet also allow you to realize that you are allowed to accept your loved one's death. also hope to highlight that as humans we are so afraid of the inevitable, because the outcome is unknown. Do not be afraid :) Both death, and life, too, are inevitable. Appreciate life now. Live Your Life. Let your family, whether blood-related or not, live in you.
