Do you still regret the things you didn’t say? I definitely do. I wish I had realized before his last few days that when my dad questioned my actions, he wasn’t putting me down, just encouraging me to reach my potential. I wish I had realized how many of my passions had been his passions before I discovered his camera gear and photos and schoolwork and books when I was clearing out the basement after he died.
Just this week, I discovered the site Five More Minutes With, where you can create an online memorial and say all those things you didn’t – and share them with the world. I’m working on my memorial to my dad. Even if it’s too late for him to hear it, it’s not too late for me and the others who loved him.
