“It's 3:57 PM on Tuesday July 4th. Currently i'm in Toma (sp?), Wisconsin. I'm about one mile from the 90/94 westbound split. The last time I saw this road was probably... easily... four years ago. And now I'm seeing it again for entirely the wrong reasons. It's hard not to reflect on the fact that... only a couple of weeks ago I could have driven up here to see Grandpa Shep for his 90th birthday. Now I'm driving up here to say goodbye to him. This is... this is far too hard for me right now. While I wish that I didn't have to do this, like the man in black said, 'I don't like it but I guess things happen that way.'”

It is too bad shitty things have to happen in life.

We are all thinking about you.

Stay strong. You've got tons of friends and loved ones still keeping you in thoughts.

"Perhaps they are not stars in the sky
But rather openings where our loved ones
Shine down to let us know they are happy"

Look up in the sky at night, honey, and say hello to Shep. When the stars twinkle, that means he's saying hi right back...

As long as you have loving memories of him, you don't have to say goodbye. He'll remain alive and well in your heart.
((((big big big hugs))))

The sad fact is that time is finite. We'll never have the time to do all the things we would like to someone, say all the things we would like to say, or hear all we would like to hear. We will always feel a loss, and will always have those "if only I had had more time" feelings.

We do the best we can, with who we are and what we've got. I think about this a lot as my dad ages too. A few weeks ago I recorded some morning conversations between he and I, just so at some point down the road I don't forget what he sounded like.

My thoughts are with you, fellow finite human.
