It’s almost impossible for me to believe it’s been 10 years since dad passed on. In some ways it feels like he’s been gone forever, and then other times like I could pick up the phone and call him (well, no because he was deaf and the phone was a nightmare for him).
It makes me sad that he died before texting and social media was a thing because he’d have been so good at it, and it would have gone a long way towards bridging the last distance his hearing loss put between us.
He gave me my love of theatre, and public speaking and generally being a smart (as well as a smart ass) and for all of that and way more than I could ever get into a blog post I am grateful.
If you knew him, and have good memories, I’d love for you to drop a comment. Hearing about the ways he touched other people always makes me smile.
Smart. Kind. Funny. At least that's the goal. I care about encouraging girls to consider STEM careers, helping nonprofits be the best they can be, cats, and German-style boardgames.
