This has been the view I have been enjoying lately from the driver’s seat of the PT Cruiser. It is one of my favorite back roads between my hometown and the Red Dog Estate. My father, who had Alzheimer’s disease, suddenly took a turn for the worse and was moved to a long-term care facility. Mom took care of Dad at home for as long as she could but the latest changes were more than she could handle on her own. I have been driving the back roads when returning from visiting my Dad and helping my Mom. Early this morning my Dad completed his journey on the road of life. He too loved exploring the back roads and fished at many lakes along the way. My Dad and Mom were together for just shy of 60 years of marriage and were both true to their wedding vows. No man can do better than to leave this world by fulfilling a promise.
