Saying Goodbye

Saying goodbye for good is never easy.

During the second week in August we had been saying goodbye to dad for a few days.

We said goodbye to dad for the last time on August 12th 2010.

That was the last time I could hold his warm hand or kiss his cheek. That was the last time we could hug him or touch him.

Though I remind myself that he is no longer suffering, I already miss him. I know there’s going to be some challenging days ahead.

That’s when I’ll have to try to remember that I can suck in some Bondi medicine by taking a walk along the beach or the cliffs. Doing this has helped me heal the pain of grief before. Bondi has that special energy for me.
