DADDY















 sat there and told stories about their great great and great great great grandpa. It was a wonderful day and yet very sad day. First time I've been back since I left him there.. Been crying pretty much every since. Think I may take a few days off. Much harder than I thought.

Sometimes, even after a long time, grief can well up and overwhelm us, the feelings fresh, raw, and painful. I hope your sorrow gives way to peace. Sending love and light your way.

Lost my Dad in 2005 at 85 and Mom in 2019 at 98. I still talk to them when things get a little much for me.

Love you

Lin

Those shared stories will stay with the children. That’s how we keep past generations ‘alive.’

Much love going your way, Jackiesue. In a way, I envy you. There are many who did not have such a loving relationship with their fathers. I am glad you did.

Allen I tell everyone I was daddy's favorite because I was an only child..but I was daddy's little girl...always.

I miss mine, too. Felt like an orphan when he died. I am glad you get to share the memories with the little ones.

I went there again today too. It was such a beautiful day. We had some nice rain and today was one of those good days, where everything is shining.
It was a very nice day. One good thing about being an old man in a scooter is the wildlife is not afraid.

So besides checking on the deer herd, i got to see lots of birds,too many to tell.

The deer are looking scruffy. I hope they are just shedding.
I'm worried about that but they probably know what they are doing . We have that deer wasting disease, but hopefully they are just shedding.
I took a break at the end of my route. I saw my friend Dennis the bus driver. I used to love riding on the bus with him and we will keep that.
So after all that excitement i was getting pretty tired.
I stopped by the cemetary because i do that. It is not possible to talk with them, but i thought they could use a visit.
