Beautiful story and analogy. I have a few things like that cheque that will never, if I have anything to say about it, be thrown away for exactly the same reason. Well done.
I love this. It made me think of my own dad who was a gentle soul. Very well done.

Ah, what awesome memories. I like your Jacob's ladder analogy, too. Nice job!

The analogy of Jacob's Ladder, and tying together that terrible scene on the stairs with the time in hospital was a lovely touch.
I enjoyed this beautiful tribute and reminiscence. I impathize with how much this probably took out of you, if your experience in writing was at all similar to my own this week.
My favorite description was "caught
in a prison of pain and tubes."
It is, indeed, those "small" things that hold a wealth of meaning.
