For a very dear friend that lost his father to suicide. I had two versions here, I have removed the first version, #2 is now #1 🙂
“Daddies Love Their Sons”
I rewrote the story of his father’s death by coming from the angle of helping a loved one pass like I did for Uncle Bob.
I believe we have the right to leave, die or check out, but not to leave our families with a mess – both literally and figuratively. One should tie up as many lose ends as possible and there should be no blood or dangling bodies… maybe we could even hold hands.
It reminds of of when Uncle Bob died. And it fills me with empathy and love for my friend and his father.
