Am I an orphan now?

On Tuesday, July 21st at around 11:20 am, I held my father’s hand as he died. Tomorrow is the memorial service.

I really don’t have a lot to say yet, I’m sure more will come in time.

What I do know is that I don’t have any living parents anymore. I have joined the club I never wanted to join.

I am swimming in the sea of denial at the moment, and plan to remain here for the foreseeable short term.
