Adapted from a recent online discussion.
Dear Carolyn: It was the 15th anniversary of my dads death recently. I know it should have been a day marked by profound grief, but instead the primary feeling I had was … relief.
This sentiment would have been easier to accept if he had been a monster, but he was an absolutely wonderful man and deeply devoted father whom I adored, and still do.
