Every month for eight months now I remember this day that my dad passed away and think of how everything happened so quickly and how unreal it all seemed. It still seems that way and I am still overwhelmed with sadness and loss. However I have now allowed myself to remember the good times too, and to talk with the kids about their pap-pap. Daddy was always afraid he would be forgotten and it makes my heart happy that not only am I keeping him alive through my memories and sharing them with the kids but my children are keeping him alive through their memories. I am so very grateful they had time with him. He was such a wonderful father and a loving grandfather.
Our wedding Anniversary is in a few days and I am so very blessed to have had my parents be such a large part of that very important day. It blows me away that Henry and I have been married for nearly 12 years.....but that's a story for another day...today is about my dad. Thanks for listening.
