I’m Dead. Now What?

My father passed away seven years ago. He was 93 when he died, but his mind started deteriorating six years before that. Alzheimer’s stealthily stole the essence of who he was, and watching him lose a step here and there was painful for our entire family. We were very close and I miss him every day. My dad would have preferred to die of a heart attack while enjoying a long walk but, as it turned out, he had a long time to consider what was just over the horizon. A loving and conscientious husband and father, he thought carefully about the comfort and safety of his wife and family after he was gone.
