This picture has been at the Crocker Art museum for as long as I can remember. It has always reminded me of my dad as he has always had a big Santa beard. Last week when i visited the museum, it was the first time i have seen it since my dad passed away in March & to be honest, i was nervous about seeing it. I sat on the bench & just stared at it for awhile. I feel like this is the last image that i have of my dad, even though the museum piece isnt really him. Ever since i have been having daily replays in my head of the moment he died....my reactions, my brother & sisters reactions, us talking to him, the nurse, the final moments. It just keeps replaying over & over. I hope at some point i will stop doing this. The aftermath of death is strange.
