Losing with Scrum, Sprint 13 Review – Goodbye Dad

July 9th through July 16th


My dad passed away on Wednesday. He’d been fighting cancer for two years, and lost the battle.

Two days before he passed away, I was called over to help calm him down. He was hallucinating and talking to his father, who passed away long ago. My dad said that he wanted to go home.

I told him it was OK to go home, to go to his parents, if he wanted to.

Two days later, he joined them.

My dad was in unbearable pain for most of a year, fighting every day. This is a mercy, for he is released from this pain.

Of everyone I’ve ever known, he deserved it the least. He is (was?) literally my hero, my mentor, my friend…

I miss him every day.
