In Memoriam

My dad's funeral was one week ago and I guess I can say things are getting better. I'm able to talk about him most days without crying but it stills breaks (and warms) my heart to see M. go to bed every night clutching the program from the service. She carries it around with her and talks to Afi on her Dora cellphone. Clearly she understands that something is different, she just isn't quite sure what.

My step-sister, Shandie, put together a really lovely slideshow and I wanted to share it here.


  1. Beautiful slide show.

    Loved the wedding shots of you with your Dad as well as the shots of him with Maren.

    It made me teary. I'm very sad for your loss. I think losing parents is one of the worst things about getting older. I haven't gone through it yet, but I know that it will eventually come, and I'm watching friends go through it. :(

  2. Poor Maren. We will have to give her extra hugs this weekend.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss, my thoughts are with you xx
