Somehow, we have officially made it through a year of firsts without you. As I sit here tonight to write to you, I can't help but wonder how it feels like it was only last week as I sat beside your bed while you took your last breath. At other times, it seems like several months since I saw you. For some people, holidays and special gatherings may be the time they miss a loved one the most. But for me, my heart is torn in two every time I am at your house with Gram and you are not there. I miss calling you just because I was bored or to see how you were doing. Some days I can talk about you to others and it makes me feel like you are still here. Other times, the slightest reminder of you makes me want to sob. I could go on forever about how much I miss you and how I feel but I am sure you already know that. Even though we got to be with you during the last hours of your life, it wasn't enough time. But, when is saying goodbye to a loved one ever enough time? I have learned that when someone so close to you dies, your life is no longer the same. You basically adapt to a new life without that person. Pretty much every milestone, achievement, and positive experience in my life that I can recall was either because of your guidance or your support. You even treated Bryan like he was one of your grandchildren. He thought the world of you, as well. You taught him so much in the last 14 years. You two were different in some ways but alike in many. I guess that is why you got along so well. And, I can't even touch on how much of an impact you have made on Cooper and Drake. Cooper writes you notes and posts them at your house, but I am sure you already know this:) And, Drake, even though he only just turned 3, calls you "Memaw's Pappy" so we know he is referring to you. He sometimes gets teary eyed and says he misses you. I couldn't imagine life without you before you died, and I still can't imagine life without you now. It is still all so fresh in my mind...every detail of your last few days, the heartache and the change to our lives. As we embark on the second year without you here on Earth, I pray that our hearts get a little lighter, that we are able to get by more than a day or two without crying, and that God allows us to still feel your presence with us. I hope you are watching over us and we are making you proud. I love you so much and miss you more than I could ever say.

So tomorrow I head to the mountains for deer hunting, wish you were coming along. You will definitely be missed. But I am sure memories will be the highlight of our week. We miss you so much PAP. I know where you will be sitting.

Today was the very first Thanksgiving that we had to spend without you. Words can't even describe how hard it was to hold it together. It was my very first Thanksgiving without seeing you. You have made such an impact on so many people. It hurts to hear so many memories of you because I miss you so much, but it always seems to help because I feel closer to you when I hear those memories spoken. I think speaking about you and seeing pictures of you helps keep your memory alive for all of us. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you in my life. I love and miss you so very much.

I was back cleaning the bathroom for Gram today and it made me think about when I was a lot younger and used to hide outside the bathroom door when you were in there. I used to jump out and scare you when you would come out. You would jump and then start laughing and threaten to get me back. You always had a good sense of humor.

Every time I drive down 83 and pass York Barbell I see the statue holding the weights and I think of you. We were with you in the car one time and you told us that you were built just like that guy when you were younger. We already knew you were strong, inside and out, but it always made us chuckle when you told us stories like that.

Being in the mountains for bear this weekend brought a lot of memory's back. I couldn't help but ride down dry run road every day we were there. I even paid a visted to the first place you ever took me hunting up there. Back to your old tree stand. Wasn't sure I could find it since it's been along time since I been there but I did. I remember the story was that day that you seen the biggest buck ever out of that tree but dad and Jeff scared it off before you could get a shot. And I had a big old bag of root beer barrels with me just like you always did.

Every birthday, and I mean every single one, I could always count on you calling to wish me a Happy Birthday. It was something I always looked forward too.

You were the one who taught me not to take any crap off of anyone. I am glad I had someone so strong and wise in my life to help guide me. I wish I would have slowed down in this busy life and listened to you more at times.

Every time I watch walker texas ranger and they start shooting I always remember you counting the shots and saying there's no way there's that many bullets in that gun
