I searched the basement all day today, literally ten minutes at a time, knowing there was *something* down there *somewhere*. In the final corner of the closet, in the bottom box, I managed to uncover just these few photos. Seeing your smile both warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes at the same time. It's still so hard some days... But today I wish you a Happy Birthday, knowing you are celebrating with Aunt Carol, Uncle Jack, and your parents. Mom, the kids and I went to dinner at Cracker Barrel, I went to Mac's where my friends and I toasted to you.. I did not actually let a single tear fall, despite the fact that my heart still misses you terribly. Till I see you again Daddy..... <3

As the third anniversary of your death approaches, I find myself recalling your final days..the last few phone calls..checking in on you..asking about funeral and burial arrangements..checking in on the boys..making arrangements for Nat to go to the cemetery with you to clear away the burial site..clear up to the final phone call at 6pm the evening before you died. When I got your phone I saw that I was the last person you spoke to. I remember the call so clearly..... I had just sent you a picture of Uncle Jack's urn because you didn't get a clear one at the burial with your phone. You called to thank me for sending it to you and tell me how much that meant to you. You were so grateful. To me it was just a picture. I didn't really get it. Until Katie posted a picture of your burial table. I didn't get a picture of it that day. I was so thankful that she did, because I had her picture. I then fully appreciated your call. At least you got to enjoy it for a moment...
As I sit in the 10 day window between Uncle Jack's death and your death, I can't help but feel as though I'm in some sort of numbing state of limbo..making some kind of weird mental countdown to your last day. I told myself this year that I wasn't going to do this. But the memories come and they're so overwhelming. The tears immediately follow. It's a constant battle. A war between remembering, and forgetting....

As May 1st has cone and gone, I find it so hard to believe it's been two years without you. I scroll down just a couple of posts and see Aunt Carol's entries..she was so heart broken without you. As much as my heart bleeds for everyone she left behind, there is a sense of comfort knowing she is at peace with you and Uncle Jack. I miss you, Dad. I love you so much. <3

As devastating as today was, I take an ounce of comfort in knowing that you, Uncle Jack, and your parents welcomed Aunt Carol with your loving arms. Aunt Carol has been reunited with her Irish Twin. Please keep her safe.
