My father passed away at the age of 84. Another member of the Greatest Generation has left us.
I will be attending to details, and will leave the politics to others.
He was 84 and not in good health, so his passing is not unexpected and yet still painful…for some reason, I keep coming back to Robert Kennedy quoting Aeschylus:
In our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.
I hope so…
