6 things about my dad’s death


I can’t let go of the image of his ears. They were pulsing with trapped blood.

It’s a different kind of death when a loved one dies unexpectedly.

Even though we were mourning, we were laughing a lot.

We had been fighting and when he died, we weren’t.

We know death is inevitable, and yet, it’s a shock. A hit against the chest, the knees, the heart.

When a loved one dies, you are given membership to a club you never wanted to be apart of.

Missed Part 1?
