I’ve been noticeably absent… not just from the Pink Tambourine Club, but also from my life. Last week, my father died. He had lung cancer and started chemo treatments in June 2012. While he battled for his life, I battled situational depression. I’ve always been a “go-getter” and was highly frustrated as I had become “productively paralyzed” and “creatively crippled.”
The Pink Tambourine Club is all about friendship. I can honestly say my friends were there with me every step of the way. And, I have no doubt they will continue to be by my side as I experience this next phase of the grieving process. I’d like to share a bit of my journey with you. Maybe it will help you when you have a terminally ill loved one or perhaps my story will give you insight in how you might support a grieving friend.
I’m hoping to post a story about my journey each week for the next couple months. I can’t make any guarantees, because I don’t know how productive or creative I’ll feel in the weeks to come.
My father was simply the best. Many people gathered together to celebrate his amazing life. He was a wise man and I shared some of the greatest lessons he taught me in this eulogy.
Thanks for all your support,
Founder, Pink Tambourine Club
