Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is Daddy's birthday. I have surprised myself with how well I have held it together. I think I have been more emotional the past several days leading up to it than I have been today. Cale and I took a trip to the cemetery today. I am ashamed to admit this is my first trip. It has been something I just couldn't make myself do. I know that he is not there, but it was just something I couldn't do. It is still hard for me to think he is gone. I often want to pick up the phone and call him or go by and see him. I still think about him everyday and miss him dearly! Happy Birthday Daddy!

I understand how you feel. I lost my father a little over 3 years ago. It will get easier but the pain and missing will never go away. The only comforting thing I can tell you is that he is always with you. I still have a hard time going to the cemetery but I feel it is very healing and gives you an opportunity to talk to him. I'm so sorry for your loss.
