Slice of Life

This is tough.  I look up and see his chin start to quiver.  My own eyes fill up with emotion.  I look away and see Carla.  Huh, she buried her dad 6months? 8 months ago?  There’s Mark.  He’s lost both parents.  There’s John. His dad. There’s Katie, both parents.  There’s Lana. Her dad.   My father-in-law.

When did this start happening?

  1. Oh this one hurts. It’s very well written and conveys such emotion and feeling in such few words. The short sentences just hit you as you read it. Thinking of everyone.
