I took this photo a half an hour after I saw my father alive for the last time.
The date and time was: January 22, 2012 - 10:45.
I was just going home quickly and set to return to San Diego 2 days later.
Unfortunately time cruelly intervened with my ill-planned intentions...
He passed away the next day.
Looking back I sure wish I'd have hugged him a little harder; a little longer.
And instead of the single kiss I gave him on his forehead -
I wish I'd have covered his sweet face with them.
And instead of boarding that train I wish I'd have paid head to my instincts...
And just stayed with him.
