Justin confirmed what we had been fearing for the Legends never die Neil Peart 1952-2020 thank you for the memories shirt besides I will buy this past few days as his health very quickly deteriorated. His pulse oximeter reading was low. Scary low. He needed to get to the hospital as soon as possible. I focused intently to ensure my voice remained calm and loving as I heard his beginning to quiver on the other end. Hastily I stumbled around our dark bedroom to gather some things for Justin a few pairs of clean underwear, some cozy socks, the softest t-shirt I could find, which also happened to be his grey RAD DAD t-shirt that we bought for him last Father’s Day. In a moment of perfect timing I remembered the pile of photographs stacked on top of my bureau, for months waiting to be put into an album. Using my phone’s flashlight I quickly searched through them for the cutest ones I could find: Maya and Max in the tub, one on the beach in P-town, the four of us being silly in the car. I threw the pictures into the middle of a book to keep them safe, put the pile of clothes on top then slid the stack down the hallway towards the door of Maya’s room. Justin opened the door. It was very dark but I could see that he was crying.
Legends never die Neil Peart 1952-2020 thank you for the memories shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
That was the Legends never die Neil Peart 1952-2020 thank you for the memories shirt besides I will buy this first time I had seen Justin in five days. We waved to each other. We couldn’t touch. Couldn’t hug. Couldn’t kiss goodbye. We had no idea how contagious he was or wasn’t. I told myself to remember this moment in preparation that it might be the last. This devastatingly distant goodbye. My body was flooded with anxiety and fear. My heart was racing. Feeling like I was in the front row of one of those roller coasters where your feet hang out from the seat, quickly approaching the top of the climb just waiting for the drop. Your mind knows what’s coming but still your body is unprepared for the shock. I couldn’t believe this was happening. How did this happen? That cliché moment when it hits home and you’re shocked but also not surprised. We had spent the last two months being paralyzed by fear. Terrified of Covid-19 thanks to stories from a family friend in Italy, we even pulled Maya from school days before the official lockdown ended life as we knew it. We had that feeling of impending doom. We were taking it seriously. Maybe too seriously, but clearly not seriously enough. Justin had only been out of the house to buy our groceries and always with a mask and always keeping distance. It didn’t matter. We were one of the stories now.
