Our family has a reputation: If it’s broke, sick or something just plain hard to do–call us.
We are not miracle workers but we are hard workers. We can’t fix everything, but we will try to do something.
But there’s one thing we can’t fix.
One thing none of our skills can shape into a victory in the shadow of defeat. One thing that will not give in to elbow grease or commitment to persevere.
We can’t fix Dominic’s being gone.
We can’t make it better.
We can’t undo the deep hole his absence has carved in our hearts and our lives.
And that is very, very hard to live with.
