“Dad, you would never say goodbye to us at the end of a phone call, or when you were leaving us after a visit.  When we asked you why, you said it sounded too final.  You leaving us in the early morning of January 11 was not a final goodbye, but a “see you later” until we meet again.  We know Henry was waiting for you to come meet him.”
