I'm thinking of you all the time. There are so many things I want to talk to you about. So many things I want to show you. So many questions I have… and it's YOUR answers and advice that I'm seeking. It never gets easier, Dad. Never feels any less surreal or shocking than it did the day our journey first began. I hope you will see how much I need you to keep showing me you're close by in ways that only you know how. I miss you so much. Wish I could rewind time. Love you, Allison

Dad,

Mom came to visit last weekend and we went birding at Mount Auburn Cemetery. It is absolutely gorgeous there…. all the trees budding and flowers beginning to bloom, birds everywhere, and a wonderful peace about the whole place. Birdsong followed us everywhere we walked. It was a perfect morning. I remember visiting that place for the first time with you on one of our father-daughter Boston weekends. It feels like a step closer to heaven, entering those gates…. I know you were with us that morning and you gave me what I have longed to experience for over a year and a half now. That meant the world to me and gave me a peace that I cannot really describe. I finally *know* that you are still close by. I needed that. Thank you…. I love you, Dad, and miss you every day. ~Allison

It hasn't gotten any easier with time. The waves of grief have spread out some…. but when they hit, it's just as painful as ever. I have so many epiphanies in the moments when my heart is aching with sadness. I understand that this horrible pain will stay with me for the rest of my days and that it is up to me to find meaning in the experience and turn it into something positive in ways that I can manage. I'd still give anything to undo this entire reality. I still have episodes of total shock that lead to near panic attacks. It is awful that you are gone, Dad. I hate that I cannot hear your voice - there is so much that I want to talk to you about. I miss you. I still need my dad. The world is less kind in your absence…… Love you always, Allison

Today marked the first year without you. It hardly seems possible…. I still have moments when I feel stunned. The shock feels brand new and I have to grow accustomed to it, time and again. It's a horrible thing to try to "get used to." We are all carrying our grief around differently; Mom, Matt, and I. Watch over us and help us to feel your presence when you see that we are struggling. I miss you more than I can put into words, Dad. I can only hope that you knew how deeply I loved you and how grateful I was and still am that you were such a wonderful father.

"Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was, let it be spoken without effort, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval,somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well." By Henry Scott Holland. 1847-1918. Canon of St Paul's Cathedral
Larry it has been a year and yet it feels like just yesterday. Where is the time going? My only solice is that in God's time we will be back together. Wait for me. Marilyn
