“Van” and I this week had to rush to South Carolina for the funeral of my stepfather.
Ma was glad to see us. My stepfather was a cool guy and fully accepted my sexuality and Van into the family, even saying he was a much nicer person than my ex-wife.
But his death after a long illness will bring changes to my life.
I’m thinking more about aging and mortality now. And I will have to travel South more frequently to check in on Mom, who claims she needs no help but every once in awhile does.
But I’m up for the challenge and pray God directs me.
