It is so hard to believe that it has been 8 months since Dad passed away. Everyone says it gets better with time. Some days it seems as though it has, and others I can't believe he is gone. A lot has happened in the last 8 months that Dad would have been proud of, and a lot has happened that would have made him very sad. The proud would surely out weigh the sad. One of the proudest would have been the birth of another little Granddaughter, and she is so pretty, just like her big sister. Chris went back to school after 20 years and is doing very well. This would have made him very happy also.
One of the saddest moments we can not share with you, but we know he knows, and he would have been so upset if he was alive when it happened. Also, Grandma fell and broke her hip. She had to have surgery, and is now in a nursing home. This would not have set well with Dad. Last weekend his great niece was killed in an automobile accident at the age of 23. That would have upset him so much. She left behind 3 children.
We are all staying as strong as we can.
