Remembrance Day – My Grandfather

Reposted from here.

My grandfather was a war veteran. I didn’t get to say goodbye before he passed away, from long-standing health concerns that finally caught up to him. I was in Toronto at the time, and was actually in the process of saving up to make a visit back to Nova Scotia when I got the news. I arrived two weeks after his burial.

I miss him. My familial neglect at the sunset of his life is going to haunt me for a long time.
