"...my last memory of your dad was dinner in SF.... I can't remember the name of the resto, but I do remember the conversation I had with your dad about alternative medicine. I remember thinking, "Gosh, he's so well read and has such a rare curiousity for life." And despite his health, I really thought his strong spirit would bring him a longer life. But at least now, he's with your mom. I really do believe that. I've always admired the relationship you have with your parents - so much love and laughter in your family - which is truly special and rare...and untouchable. No matter what, your mom and dad will always be with both of you."
Here, we share bits of the many of the emailed prayers, words of encouragement, and memories of Dad that loved ones have sent us. They have made us smile, cry, laugh, and, most of all, have helped carry us through the first few days and weeks without our Dad.
