Japanische Azalee 'Purpurtraum'
, dad is definitely senillg himself short. I can\'t speak for my brother and sister but I know that I\'ve asked him to fill that role when I needed it, and he\'s stepped up to the plate like it was the most natural thing in the world. Of course it isn\'t natural, but it\'s a gift mom left with us. Because of her example, we know how to love and take care of each other. Like dad told her when we were all together to hear the news that her cancer had spread, mom was the best thing that ever happened to any of us. She was a constant force in each of our lives loving us perfectly, and unconditionally and always showing it in a way that was unquestionable. Even though she\'s gone, everything she taught us and exemplified is still with us. Dad makes that clear when he steps into that much needed role to remind me that I still have that constant, unconditionally loving force wrapped around me.
