As mentioned in my previous post Mom, Magan and I went to Asheville for a few days. It was a family vacation so we could be together for the anniversary of Dad’s death. It was nice to have a few days to get away with them, especially my sister. Even though I was home visiting for 3 weeks, I really didn’t get to see my sister that much because she has a busy work schedule.
The main reason for my trip back to North Carolina was to be with my sister and mom for the anniversary of my Dad’s death. I knew it would be a very difficult anniversary and not one I would want spend half way around the world from them. I knew that if we stayed in Chapel Hill we would just sit around miserable and depressed and that would not be how Dad would want us to be. I had the idea that we should go away for the anniversary and do something that Dad would have wanted to do.
