Today, June 18, 2020, would have been my dad’s 89th birthday had he not died last September.
A few weeks after his funeral, I was visiting my mom in New Jersey, helping her get a few affairs in order. We were going through some things and came across the shaving cream and Old Spice that dad had with him at the hospital and then for the short time at the rehab facility before he died.
Mom asked me if I wanted them?
Well, I wasn’t sure, but I wasn’t going to say no to her.
So, here we are, nine months later and every morning, I see both in the back of the shelf with some of my regular accessories. I’ve never used either and not sure if I ever will, but if I do, it will be for a special event.
But, each morning I remember.
Maybe someday when I’m gone, my wife or kids will be cleaning my stuff out and wonder where they came from?
Maybe they will remember?
Does anyone else have unique keepsakes?
