Author’s Note: This was a short story I wrote as I dealt with the grief of losing my father-in-law. It was hard for me as he was a very special man and always made me feel at home even when others did not. He made me laugh. He was his own unique person and embraced it. I lost a parent when I lost him. In this story, I imagine what it was for him when he knew he was dying and God spoke to him. It is a story entirely of dialogue between David and God. I hope you
