Death


It's been over 2 months since my father died. The longer it's been, I realize one of the worse things about death is how final death is. More than anything I think the finality has been the hardest to live with. The fact that I will never see my dad again, or talk to/with him, or jump in his arms (although I haven't done that in 30 years :)). I miss him alot and I'm glad that I took advantage of the time he did have here on this earth and I got to know him and accept him for himself.

My condolences to your loss. It is a very good sketch, and the blue eyes reminded me of the one I did for a friend of mine.

Thank you for sharing your heart as well as your drawing. It is not easy in any way. May dad died in 2000 and our son back in `89. I wish you good memories and peace.
