Thank You, Josh Marshall

Josh Marshall and Talking Points Memo are on "the other side" of the Blogosphere, so he rarely appears in this space. But Josh's father passed away a few days ago and Josh's description of his thoughts and recollections about his father in the early hours of his grief struck home with me.

My father passed away in 1992 and, even with the passage of time that supposedly heals all wounds, I still feel the pain of his passing in moments of reflection about some cherished or forgotten detail I suddenly and without warning recall from my years with him. I miss him so very much.

Josh moved me to tears and I appreciate his sharing his mourning. You can read his entire moving post here.
