On February 25, 2010 my dad passed away due to complications of Parkinson’s Disease. This is why LIFE IS NOT FAIR. My dad, mom, and I used to go on family trips where we would explore nature and go on hikes and stuff. My dad went on hikes almost every day on his lunch breaks. He liked to go do stuff. We backpacked through Europe and my dad ended up carrying most of my mom’s stuff as well. He was always a strong man, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. He always did what he thought was the right thing to do and he helped people. Over 100 people came to his funeral, and we received condolences from people he knew all the way back in high school.
And then he gets Parkinson’s and his mobility kept deteriorating and there were complications which I’m not going to go into at the moment because it’s only my third blog post and I don’t want to scare you away yet.
And then you think, why did it have to happen to such a good person? Why did it have to be MY DAD? Why can’t these things happen to bad people? Or to nobody at all?
I was going to post the obit from the LA Times but as it lists names and everything I have decided not to.
