So long, and thanks for all the fish

My father, Fred, passed on today. 

It’s been coming for a while, and yet, when it happens, it feels so sudden. 

It was peaceful and seemed painless. I told him his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren would be there in ten minutes. I told him I loved him very much. I kissed him on the cheek. And he coughed, never to inhale again.

I will send out a proper farewell tomorrow. But thank you to all family and friends who reached out and supported Fred during this time. He knows.

He knew.

Love, Deirdre
