To Mom on Dad’s Day
By Patrick A Granfors

My dad passed away in 2005. I miss him a lot but my mom was married to him for 55 years. She’s got dibs. She also has Alzheimer’s and for now at least, fond memories of him. Some people might find it creepy, but she has his ashes in an urn in her room in the assisted living facility so they can chat.

We took her on vacation with us last month to Missouri and one of our stops was the Crystal Bridges Art museum near Rogers, Arkansas where I took her picture. Walmart, of all the seemingly least likely sponsors, spent a pile of money to build the facility and acquire significant artwork.

Hi mom

I know, I miss him too

Though I realize you haven’t a clue

That it’s father’s day

And that I am without

Except for pleasant memories

So for that I’ll not pout

I’ll celebrate what was

In the man that we had

For you a lost soul mate

For me a fine dad
