I’m so glad you had a chance to develop a different kind of relationship before he died. Sincerest condolences. At least there was the conversation and the time you both had. Same thing with me and my father. We had just started to be friends. Be the witch you were born to be magic happy wild and free poster. But I am grateful we were both able to open up and share it together. My father wasn’t nearly as esteemed as your father but based on the photos he was most likely of the same generation as my father. A generation where feelings are not shared or expressed. My father was exceptionally quiet, even though he was a musician. Even if you were speaking directly to him he’d answer with only a few words, at best. As a musician, he was seldom home & holding down a job was second to his music.

As one might imagine, he never spoke about himself or his feelings. For all intents & purposes he was a horrible father because he didn’t pay his bills, we’d get evicted several times a year resulting in new schools, we ate okay when the money was there & not so good when it was scarce.

Anyway, shortly before he died of Parkinson’s, I told him that I forgave him & I felt that he did the best he knew how to do as a father. I told him that I loved him. In typical fashion, he said nothing, but he did give me a slight smile as the tears quietly rolled down his cheeks. That was the last time I saw my father alive.
