I miss my father-in-law Walter Maheux a lot. I have sadness in waves.
And feel really, really lucky that I am not in “the club” of people who have lost parents. As I was reminded by my wife Lanna’s beautiful blogpost today.
I came very close 4 years ago now, and so happy my father is still a cancer survivor. Major brain cancer usually takes a life within 12-18 months, and I have 4 years now and my dad is still mainly cancer free. I am lucky.
Grieving is so much a part of the human experience. It’s often how we gain perspective about life. And the memories live on.
And in nature, death bring soil which brings life again.
Walter was a beautiful man and we miss him.
