An Open Letter To My Deceased Father

Wherever you are, I will see you down the road

Dear Father,

I want to let you know I am doing well. I want to let you know I am constantly sharing you with people and talking about you to my therapist. My way of grieving, so far, is to share you with joy as much as I can.




Open Letters are sent to the world and beyond. Here we say what must be said, whether it is harsh, humorous, or even a teensy bit passive aggressive. Share your open letters with the world, the meta-physical, or your micro-managing boss.
