Thank you for the book suggestion. I’m building quite a reading list from referrals of my Medium network. You, too? I will add it to the list. It seems the library is leaving me a couple of messages a week about held books becoming available.;)
I am sorry about your mom, too. And, the divorce. You list two moms in a short time.
My dad did eventually remarry — my first year if college. Although I know my dad loved her, I kind of felt they were not the best match — really knew how to bring out the worst in each other. She died a slow, home bound death with my dad as caregiver. It was rough.
Now, at the age if eighty, my dad has a lovely lady friend. He is happier than I remember in my whole life. I am grateful!
