Hey Dad,

It's 4am and I was awakened by some noise outside. I couldn't go back to sleep. I am still in shock that you are gone. Posting is like therapy for me. I still haven't really had the opportunity to take this all in. Life is not what it was, it's different, you are missing. I know there will be a void that can never be filled however whenever I feel as though I am working through it something happens and I realize I am not working through it at all, I am just existing.

Love you much,
Ttys!

Hey Dad,

I left work today, got in my car and dialed your number only to remember I can no longer pick up the phone to hear your voice. I talked to Willie not to long ago and we were laughing at the time you sent me to meet "YOUR" cousins. I had him laughing so hard at my observation, he said just as hard as you did. Then he said, "I told Peaches what the situation was. I said, "Yeah, my dad told me you did however he wasn't sure so he sent me over there. However when I gave him the same story you did, he said okay I believe it now because Twanda is going to tell it like it is. I told Willie I couldn't believe you set me up like that. We laughed about it just as hard as you and I did. Mary wants us to get together for "our" birthdays. You know her birthday is a week after mine. Ty and I had already planned to be there before your passing. So she thought it would be a good idea to have a barbecue to get the family together so we can sit around and talk trash about you. LOL!!!

I was at work bored as all get out and I started thinking about the time we were in Harlem walking down the street and the homeless guy walked up shouting Magic Johnson is HIV positive and your reaction to that. Then remember the time we went to New York and the car was towed because I told you to park on the street not in the parking garage. It costs $250 to get the car back and you said, "oh well Twanda, that was your spending money. But none-the-less, I spent your money and you would always make sure I came home with more money than I left with. I'm going to miss walking out the door only for you to call me back in and ask if I have money and then give me money before even answering. Ty does that as well, he knows I have a pocket full of money but will reach in his pocket to be sure I have more than I need.

Ty's birthday is next week so I am planning something for him. I can't believe we have been together as long as we have already. And you know, next year is my big "FIVE O." I will start planning in the next few months, I'm thinking a rooftop pool party. I wish you could be here to see how fabulous 50 looks on me. LOL!

I miss just hearing your voice, miss hearing "okay, tell me this, tell me this," when I have you stumped during our debates. Or hearing you say, "how did you get so much wisdom for your age?" I don't know, I guess the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree.

I spoke with Claudia, she was shocked. She called me the other day to wish Ty and me a Happy New Year. I told her we'd pay her a visit the next time we are in town. She says she's still in the Bronx.

Oba and I have formed a friendship. I invited him to brunch before I left. I ordered crab cakes and he copied my order. Then as we began to talk he told me that was the last meal the two of you had together, for your birthday. I kept telling me how much I think like you and how much my attitude and mannerisms were like yours. He thanked me, said he was so happy and honored that I had brunch with him. He said it helped to bring closure. His sweet baby girls miss you too. Oba told them they could call me when they wanted to talk about you.

It's snowing now, the neighbor across the street has been taking care of the snow. I thought it was so nice of him to just take the initiative. See you are still taking care of me even though you are not here, doing whatever you can to make my life easier. Uncle Bryant will take care of the fence for me. I cleaned out the majority of the stuff in your bedroom, I donated most of your clothes to a homeless shelter. Whatever was not donated was given to Ty, Uncle Bryant, little Bryant and I will send uncle Brett a couple suits. I can't find anyone to fit your shoes though.

My mom took some of your books, I will ship the rest home so I can keep them. Ty wants to add them to his collection. There is so much for me to do. I anticipate it taking me at least six months, especially with the way I have to go back and forth to handle it. Ty has the bomber jacket you were wearing the week of Thanksgiving, I found the lining in the back of your bedroom closet.

I'm going to go now, I am getting hungry and I'm sure Ty is hungry. Salmon is on the menu tonight along with yams and string beans.

Love you,
Talk to you later.
