Letters to my dad

Me and dad serious

Dear Dad,

It has been almost 10 months since you passed away before my eyes. My first child was four months old almost to the day when you passed. I can’t say I have mastered the art of grieving while caring for a newborn. My grief had to take a backseat. But it’s not just about grief. Our relationship was complicated, and your death has left me with the need to make sense of it. Before you died, I focused too much on the negative aspects of our relationship, and then afterwards, I only wanted to focus on the positive. Here, I won’t leave anything out. I will include the good, the bad, and everything in between. I owe it to you, and I owe it to myself.
