  • When my dad died I was cleaning the bathroom. I know that seems so insignificant to remember but I know the exact feeling of standing there cleaning the bathroom and hearing the phone ring. It was my brother. I missed it the first time but when he called back he said, “Did you hear?” “No.” I was cautious but not expecting, “Dad passed away.” I thought he was joking. Why would he, but still. I thought maybe he was mistaken. We hung up. I just stood there, mop in one hand and phone in the other hand, still. I walked down to my husband and I said, “I think my dad died.”
