Walking in your old man's shoes

I inherited 2 kaftans (persian robes) from my dad. A friend made them for him to wear when he had cancer so it would be easier to get around the house. Over the years I wore one out completely.  The other I'm wearing right now.

I bet 25 years ago, on this same day, my father was wandering around his house like I am today feeling sick as a dog, worse than I no doubt, just looking for some relief or distraction from this disease. My wedding was only one week later in that same house.

His last really good day was my wedding. He died four months later.
