She had invited him over around 5, but they didn't show up until , and they left around 10.

Even though they were spending the next day in Detroit, he told them he was planning to show Mary the sights, and they wouldn't see him again before he left.

For all the sorrow and loss, we thought at least we would get some quality time with our dad.

Then a couple months later, my dad tells me he's been seeing someone named Mary from church, that he's been going out to dinner and movies and taking dance lessons.

She had had many health problems over the years, including a Hepatitis C infection from a blood transfusion in the late 80s and a stroke in 1995, but we didn't have any reason to think she was critically ill.

For a couple of months, it seemed like something positive might come out of this horrible pain. Last June, my mom went into the hospital for a colonoscopy.She'd been having bleeding problems for a while, and her doctor sent her to the ER.The news hit me hard, and after a week or so I told him as much, that the idea of someone sitting at the dining room table where Mom used to sit made me want to cry and scream and throw things.He was genuinely upset to hear this, and he told me he never wanted to hurt me, but that he felt happy for the first time in a long time.
