End of the Struggle


My father died today. I spoke with him yesterday and he was looking forward to my visit this weekend for Father's Day. There is a possibility that he had not actively been drinking for a week or two before he died, but the damage had already been done. I'm relieved that he is no longer suffering. I wish a lot of things, but I take comfort that he is at some peace now.
