I am still trying to process the death of my father yesterday. Needless to say, it's complicated. I was not particularly close to my dad. We met for the first time when I was 18. Since then, I only saw him four times in the past 25 or so years.
Regardless, I am left with a lot of conflicting emotions -- My dad caused a lot of pain in many people's lives. While I do not feel I have anything to forgive him for, I do have a sense that I could have done better to understand him.
Loss is as equally complicated as the relationships they leave behind.
