Dear Sis and Sam,

Finally Dad's house is empty. The floors are swept and counters shine. He'd be proud to see his voraciously blooming magnolia tree out his deck window. I think he can see it even now. Mark came by to say another goodbye. Always sad. He was such a good "almost a son" to Dad, wasn't he? Mom's paintings have been given temporary shelter in my garage. Maybe they will find new homes to settle in, like Dad's beloved Bella. This last chapter has been awaiting us, and is closing behind the locked door at Dad's old house.
