My father died today. Dad had been in very poor health for quite awhile, but he never gave up. I think he wanted to make it to my wedding, which will be in five weeks at my parents’ house in Southern California. But there’s a limit to what willpower can do. He stopped breathing this afternoon at home. Anyhow, blogging will be light or nonexistent for the next few days.
