Moving Dad (Happy Birthday Dad!)

We try to do what is best for our children and our parents.  I went back East in May to help my siblings move dad from his lovely home in Pennsylvania to his new apartment near my sister in Maryland.  It was very poignant going through the house and packing things up.  We all kept finding hidden treasures from our childhood and old birthday cards, diplomas and love letters between our parents.

The last walk through to make sure we had moved out everything that was going with us was filled with emotion.  All of those empty rooms, filled with stories in the walls.

We will have new stories soon of new beginnings, but for now, we say farewell to the house dad had lived in for the last 27 years.  The final 8 years without mom.
