So sorry for all who are brokenhearted by Roger’s death, Shaunta. This piece is a beautiful tribute to him as a father-in-law, father, and grandfather.

You are going through so much right now with your family responsibilities, Zach’s hospitalization, and now Roger’s passing, not to mention your writing, edits, and settling in after your trip.

Take care of yourself. Now that spring has arrived, please get out into nature — dig in the dirt, fly a kite, take a long walk, play with your dog. Nature will bring balance, renewal, and peace.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
