You'll see all sorts of tributes this week.
But one of the best I've seen is by Art Harun to his late father.
My father will be turning 78 this year, and I have been lucky to have him around for so long.
The thing that struck me about Harun's article was the sense of loss so articulately expressed.
I left a comment saying that I couldn't imagine how he felt at that time, even though I did lose my mom at the age of 12.
I just hope that everyone appreciates their parents the way they should, and a better family unit leads to real happiness.
Which reminds me.
Pain is inevitable.
Suffering is optional.
