Life Takes A Turn

Wallace J “Wally” Thompson

I spent two weeks visiting my dad in Minnesota.  He passed away last week and I’m going to take some time away.  I’ll be back: food and preparing food is that important part of life that will always exist.  I like to do both too much to stop blogging.

Grief is a fickle thing- one minute I’m smiling and remembering what a wise and funny man my dad was, the next minute I’m bawling and looking for more tissues.  I know death is inevitable but I still want him to come walking around the corner with a smile on his face saying “Heyyyy, Audrey’s here!”

Dad was 85 and his health slowly became a problem in the last few years.  I was with him last August through his wife’s death from Alzheimer’s and thought that was difficult enough for him.  Little did I know it was practice for me for his own funeral just 7 months later.  He had it all planned but it was still hard.  Oh so hard.

As the oldest of 5 I have some family matters to take care of before I can put it all behind me and just remember the good things.  It’s a temporary sad turn, it will get better.  He has his children, his 8 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren to carry on family memories and traditions.  We will remember him.
