His Dash

10 years ago

A year ago today I wrote a blog titled “The Dash”. It was meant as a tribute to Bob Saget after his tragic and untimely death two days earlier (https://youareenough712.wordpress.com/2022/01/11/the-dash/).


Today, in honour of what would have been my father in law’s 90th birthday I wanted to repost the poem again, not only because it is one of my favourite pieces and a timeless classic but because it reminds me of my father-in-law and how he lived his “dash”. He knew what mattered most in life was kindness and to live and love and make everyone he came into contact with, laugh.

To quote what I wrote a year ago, “I am so very blessed to have been a part of your dash Sid.”


***The picture attached was from my father-in-law’s 80th birthday celebration, 10 years ago, surrounded by all his grandchildren who truly loved and respected their Zaidy; life has changed so much since then but our adoration for him never will.
