Default The anniversary dates

It's been 6 years and 3 days since my Dad died at the Oregon Pen.

While it doesn't have that gut-wrenching sucker punch that it used to, the day is still a difficult one for me.

There are so many things I wish had been different. There's no changing the past, and had my Dad been born as a Millennial, he probably wouldn't have ended up in prison because he wouldn't have had to hide being gay.

I don't really miss him anymore, but I do still love him, and I still feel the loss. Anniversary dates suck.

6 years. It feels like a lot less than that though.

Ginger, I'm glad the pain isn't as sharp. It will eventually become more of a sadness that waxes and wanes between bouts of happier memories.

Most of the time, I don't notice it anymore. But on those anniversary days - it comes back. Sometimes with a time delay

Given that he died of cancer, which he would have died of whether he was in prison or not, I'm glad that he got to "steal" 7 years back from DOC. But it's still a hard day. And there are always all those unanswered questions. I've gotten better at accepting that I will never have the answers to them, but they're still there.
