September 11, 2011 -- Mom, Dad

‎10 years ago today I was attending a memorial service for my mother. She had passed away a week and a half earlier after a long battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. It was my Dad's birthday (passed in '84), and my parents' anniversary. This date still brings those memories more than anything else. Today I'm living a life in the mountains, a life that they only dreamed of. Today I am remembering those who are dear and gone, and charting new courses. Living life.
