I just got the news that someone very dear to me passed away this weekend.
He was my former employer at a very small company who became more of a grandfather figure to me. I had no one in my life who filled the role, so he was the only person in my life I ever felt that kind of bond with.
Shortly after being employed by him, he started building me up to take over his company. He had full faith in me after such a short time and even though he had 6 sons, he was going to leave me everything. Unfortunatly, when the economy crashed, there was nothing left to pass down and the company did not survive.
What’s plaguing me the most is that he never got to meet my husband. Every time I talked to him, he’d ask when he’d get to meet him. I kept saying, “one day”, but now that chance is gone. I feel like I’ve let him down. So many opportunities, where I said we should go, and something else would come up. Something “more important”. Now I feel like nothing could have possibly been more important and I’m so fucking mad at myself because there are no more opportunities.
