Veterans' Day ~

I left for Michigan right after the Fort Worden weekend, as my Dad had just gone into Hospice care. I was glad for the fiber and friends paradise of Fort Worden, as it helped me get through my Dad's last days with our family.
Our last great day with Dad was on Veterans' Day, as Mom, my brother and I stood around Dad's bed and had a delightful exchange about camping and our Alaska adventures, and had some laughs as we shared stories. Dad had rallied for these few hours and it was such a special time for all of us. Dad died November 23, just before he would have turned 90. I was glad to have been with him in his last weeks with us.
