If I could relive a day

June 1, 2020

I think I’d go back to the day my mother passed. Because I was there at the hospital with her, and I was going to stay all night. But my father told me to come home. I said I didn’t want to leave, he said, “No, come home.” When I went home, the next morning she had passed away. So if I had that day to relive over, I would have stayed with her. It bothered me for a while, you don’t want anybody to die alone. If I had the opportunity to be there, that’s what I would do. I was the first son. I was the first thing she got to see and the last.
