Dad died three weeks after my sixteenth birthday, on the back lawn, pulling weeds, a stray heart attack. Grandpa outlived him by 17 days. Things changed. Soon, Ruth would go back to her life. And I had a camera. Big deal.

  1. Sad and a lasting loss. Difficult when 16. I got to know my father as a person a bit more but he died suddenly of a heart attack just after my graduation. Now many years ago and there are ways to remember without the sadness.
