Got a call from my baby sister an hour ago (3:25 AM CDT USA) saying between the 10 PM bed-check last night and 12:15 this morning Dad died. Today is exactly one month ago that he said what would end up being his final words to me. Simply devastated.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Mike. It is like the world crashing down when it happens so suddenly. I'm sorry, too, that you weren't able to say goodbye properly, though it sounds as though he might have gone peacefully in his sleep. My thoughts are with you and your family,

Blurb on my weather app today said it perfectly: "It's f*cking cloudy outside and I don't f*cking like it." Just describes this morning better than I ever could. Just got off the phone with my oldest sister, she should be in town tomorrow or possibly Thursday. Right now every wall of this house is calling a memory and it's pretty rough with no one else under the roof.
