Today is my birthday and normally I would be thinking of when I should contact my oldest child and remind her it is her father’s birthday tomorrow. Instead, I am pondering things I should not have to ponder because he is dead. Due to unforeseen circumstances, he succumb to the elements on the 21st of April this year at the age of 47.
Our life together was short, however, the fact we have a child bonded us physically for life. Then there is the reality of loving someone which never ends despite the distance and time involved, as such, I still mourn his death. I mourn for the loss of a loved one in my child and her children’s lives, his widow and their boy, their close family, and friends… [heavy sigh]
