Remembering Dad


Today is the 9th anniversary of my father's death. As time goes by, the pain is less, but I miss him every day. He was only 64 when he died, way too young. He died 2 weeks after my father-in-law, it was truly a terrible summer. It was a stormy summer, and several trees on our property fell over or were uprooted, which I have always felt represented their deaths. My father was a wonderful dad, calm, patient, a good listener. My mother, sisters, and myself have experienced his death in different ways, but we all wish he was still a part of our lives, watching his grandsons grow up, providing love and advice, being an anchor in the storm. Here's remembering you, dad...George Arthur Kolovson, beloved father.

Susan, I lost my dad 5 weeks before he would have been 65 - far too soon, I know your pain & sense of loss

Hi Susan,
It is so hard to lose a dad who was an anchor in your life. I lost my dad when he was 82, but it was still too soon. That was also 9 years ago. His name was also George Arthur. Our last name was Kellogg, so they had the same initials. GAK.
Thanks for sharing about your dad
