a letter to Dad.

Though yesterday was hard for us, there was no place I would have rather been on “Sunday”, unless of course it was sitting at your kitchen table sipping coffee and swapping stories. I miss that so much, but i miss you more.
It was a beautiful day, the temperature, the nice breeze. Your bench and marker were placed and it felt so good to finally have those there for you! Everyone remarked on how you would have loved the truck on your marker and how they wished you could have seen it.
It was good to hear laughter, stories from years past and kids playing in a place filled with only sorrow, hopelessness and tears previously. I hope you heard Olive whisper “I love you” as we walked away. Love you dad and miss you so much.

Here’s a foto Friday of Olive as we are getting ready to head to the bust stop to get Brandon who has been anxiously anticipating his week long vacation.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately. Struggling with emotions like a rollercoaster.

I realize now, the day dad passed away will not overshadow his life or the memories we shared. The love he showed and gave to us will last a lifetime.

Thinking of him today and always. Miss you dad.
