A quote that reminds me of my dad is a line from Lord of the Rings reading ‘ Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither. Deep roots are not reached by the frost.’
My prayer to my father is ‘that while the road to the other side is long, a piece of me travels and stays with you’
I love you, Dad
