TODAY WOULD HAVE BEEN THE 79TH BIRTHDAY OF MY DAD IF HE WERE STILL ALIVE.
Dad died 26 years ago. And I still miss him. But the thing that hurts the most is that Today we closed on the sale of the home property that my Dad loved so much. Signing the paper's releasing it to the new owner was both a relief and bittersweet. We stopped by the property before going to the appointment and it was sad to see how the weeds have taken over. The fruit tree's Dad worked so hard to plant and was so proud of, are still there but very overgrown and very little fruit on them. The house that we loved so much is run down and really needs to be torn down and I guess the new owner plans on doing exactly that. I know times change and life goes on after we lose someone important but sometimes it can just be too much to deal with. I can't help but wonder how Dad would feel about the sale of the property that he loved so much. This is one decision I will have to live with. I just pray he knows it was as hard today to let go of that property as it was the day I had to let go of him. I love you and miss you Dad. Thank you for everything you have done for me even tho at the time I didn't see the wisdom in it.
