It's been a month.
I miss him every single day. And missing him means I also miss my mama, and everyone we've lost, and we're losing more every day now. I am so grateful to the people who showed up for us, who came and celebrated his life with us, to the people who attended him in his last months, to his friends who gathered for him, for my sister who handled all the logistics.
"When my father died, we put him in the ground.
When my father died, it was like a whole library
burned to the ground."
