It has been 10 years since you died. Your heart attack and stroke combined made it impossible for you to continue living. Late on the evening December 22nd of 2007, you passed with your siblings, me, and other members of the family all coming to give our final goodbyes. Since then, a lot has happened with me that I’ve told you teary eyed as I talk to myself driving on California interstates merely just to get out of the house, something you taught me. But a lot has happened because of the things I passively learned by being your son. Things that can’t be taught as well as they can be observed. So here they are, things you taught me that I didn’t realize until the years following your unexpected death.
