it was 20 years ago today...

July 29, 2008 is the 20th anniversary of my dad's death.  Last month I started to compose a post about him.  It turns out that there is a lot to say and before I knew what was happening, it started turning into a multi-part series.  Maybe at some point I'll be able to finish more of a life story about him.  He was a really intense and complicated person.  

But for today I will just say that I miss him still.  I think he would have liked the person that I have become.  And I've never found anyone who gives better hugs.  Love you, dad.

I miss my father still, too. It's funny how that feeling never really goes away, whether it's one year or thirty years. In fact, sometimes I think that I think about him more now than I did when I was younger. (Maybe it's because now I'm about as old as he was at the time of some of my memories of him.)

At any rate, I look forward to reading the multi-part series.
