A day not like any other

11 years ago today, my little brother died at age 31 of a brain tumor. It doesn’t seem that long ago, sometimes. Other times, it almost seems like his life never happened, that it’s just a collection of memories of dreams.

4 years ago today, my dad died at age 81 of a heart that was just worn out. Sometimes it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. I still catch myself occasionally saying “my dad does…”, or “my dad has…”.

I miss them both. November 16 is not on my list of favorite days. It just feels a little freaky.
