The relevant details are up for grabs and the storyteller has the opportunity to choose only what matters most with the responsibility to tell about the best parts.
I was scrolling through some old journal entries and came across this, my 'eulogy' for my dad. He died about 18 months ago after years of multiple health issues. It was a bumpy road with him, my brother and I, but in the end he's my dad, and I miss him. He was a professional photographer for 40 years, touring the world to pursue his craft. Hopefully, this helps you get to know him a little better.
