A Life Remembered

Ten years ago today I lost my father. Sometimes I still think to call him to share some tidbit of news, or I think about seeing him when I go home for vacations. Then my heart breaks all over again.

Robert John Keach, Junior
November 16, 1942-May 1, 1997
I'm sorry for all you've missed. I'm sorry for all you'll never see.
I'll love you forever.

I'm so sorry, Lex. I hope you had a shoulder to cry on. I know you still miss him, but mind, I know he'd be proud of you!

The hurt never quite goes away does it?

My father died 3.5 years ago, at Christmastime, after suffering for 10 years with Alzheimer's. He was 50 when he was diagnosed and 60 when he died. I still "talk" to him sometimes, and I so wish I could share my life with him -- especially his grandchildren, whom he never got to know.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Thanks to you all.
