Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers!!!!! I have been getting sad every time I think about Father's Day this year. I remember buying a card for dad last year and knowing that it was going to be the last card I would get for him. I stood in Target and cried...and I stood in Target and cried again a couple weeks ago when I was shopping with my friend Joan, thinking back to that time. On Saturday, I was feeling very depressed and sad, and I started talking to dad, as I do sometimes and I felt better! It is still hard to believe that he has been gone for almost a whole year, but I keep comforting myself with the knowledge that he is better off in Heaven than he was here on earth. I picture him as he was when I was a child, walking around with no pain...talking to his father and all the others who have gone on before him, and smiling down on us to let us know that everything is fine. I wonder if they have checkers and Uncle Wiggly in Heaven!

It's getting closer!

I am so excited about the reunion coming up! I can't wait to see everyone! We are going to have about 49 people attending! I know we will all have a great time playing games, eating and reminiscing about our families!!
