[OT] My dad

I just wanted to tell you all that my dad passed away suddenly on May 17. I was glad he was with me in his childhood home. After he passed I started thinking about the way this garden looked when I was a child (I live in the house his father built). I remember my grandmother grew dahlias and iris, competing in the State Fair, and my grandfather grew....roses.
Anyway, thanks everyone for all your kind words and thoughts and prayers.
Since he died I've been out in the garden everyday digging and weeding to the point of exhaustion. It feels really good to look out into my garden and feel peace.
