Almost exactly three years ago, we said goodbye to my father. He was 82 years old.

In about 12 hours, Katy and I fly to say goodbye to my mom. I'm glad I had the opportunity two weeks ago to tell her how I feel, and that everything is all right- because it's an open question whether we will make it to her before she leaves us.

She is 81 years old. Don't ask me why this is important to me at the moment; it just is.

I really don't talk much about these things; there is enough pain and death in the world that I don't need to add to it. Both of my parents lived long, productive, and happy lives. Dad passed peacefully; it is my fervent prayer that Mom's final hours are just as peaceful.

The circle turns. And in the West, the light grows just a tiny bit brighter.

Go with God.
