Following several thousand man-hours of sorting, packing, hauling, mistakes, searching, finding, more packing, more hauling, and cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, Daddy is safely installed in his new home.
It was not an easy decision to make.
He loved his condo.
And his independence.
But though he remains clear mentally, his once-robust physical self grows steadily weaker and more frail.
He's better off in a place where his meals are provided and help is always very nearby.
We know he will be cared for.
But the memories of what used to be crowd close.
Life on the ranch was an adventure.
Every day a blur of what needed to be done and what happened while doing it.
|... to this.|
But there's a saying: Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened!
Life isn't over.
Here's to new adventures.
I love you, Daddy!
