Brad Meltzer‘s father died a couple of weeks ago.
My first memory of my father is him coming home from work when I was little. He’d pick me up and put me on the top of the refrigerator, my little feet dangling over the freezer door. And in that moment, I realize he had the two things he loved most in life together in the exact same space: his family and food.
That’s from the eulogy that Brad wrote and delivered at Stewie Meltzer’s funeral. Brad calls it “Fighting the Lightning: A Eulogy for Stewart Meltzer,” and said on his Facebook page, “This may be the thing I’m most proud of writing.”
