Happy Birthday, Dad.
My dad's birthday was a few days ago, and the anniversary of his death two days after that. I wasn't going to post anything, but now that I'm here and posting stuff I thought I may as well put my remembrance from my other site here. [6/19/16 note: That site is kaput, so the story is now here, on this very blog.] It's never easy this time of year, but it was better this year than a few years back when I realized I've known him longer as a memory than as a dad. Twenty years this year... Love you, dad.
