My dad was my rock, my superhero, my confidant. With his gentle demeanor, gentle voice, and humble stance, he directed me in many life matters. As I blossomed into a woman, he grounded me and spoke words of wisdom to me that helped me navigate life on many levels.
On Sunday, May 7, my younger daughter, Moni (13 years old), and I had just finished our church service and decided to walk across the street to the Bed Bath & Beyond store. There were cops directing traffic, and they helped us cross the main street. As we stepped safely to the other side of the street, we approached an upward ramp that was the exit for the underground parking lot.
