This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is: Gone, But Never Forgotten.
You can’t see my father in his wheelchair here. We took this shot obviously from behind. My father had Alzheimer’s and was being cared for in an assisted living facility. At the time I had a part-time business printing T-shirts – so as a “joke” I printed a T-shirt that read “In case you can’t remember: I’m Abe from Room 522″.
My father didn’t know his room number but staff would tease him and tell him not to worry because his family had printed his room number on the back of his wheelchair.
My father would so cutely reply, “Oh yeah? That’s nice of them.”
Dad is gone now, but not forgotten. Never forgotten.
You can see his face in the featured image at the top of this page.
