Larry James Pittman (1951-1988) RIP

Today is the twenty-second anniversary of my dad’s death.  He’d have been 59 years old. 

Earlier this year I did a blog post about some of my feelings about this that I think says it as well as anything I can come up with today, so feel free to click back on the link below.

37 Years, 25 Days

The only thing I’d add is that no matter your stance on matters metaphysical, your time on this earth is limited and no matter if you’re a mover and a shaker or a just simple person just trying to make it through the day, you make an impact on others.  Make the most of it.

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.

    Thanks for a little perspective. Your post from earlier this year drives home how we touch people in the simplest of ways. We never know what it is that will resonate most with those in our lives.

    I’m heading to the big city (Charleston, WV) with my wife and daughter in about 30 minutes. I’ll be sure to enjoy it.
