A Decade Without My Dad

It’s been 10 years since My Father spoke to me.  10 years and roughly two weeks.   I took His life right around this time a decade ago.  I keep telling myself He was never going to recover.  It was merciful.  It was the honourable thing to do.  It was what I was placed here … Read more
