One more good bye for Dad

Thursday, June 05, 2014

Last night our synagogue engraved my Dad's name on our memorial wall in their beautiful memorial garden. It feels really great to have his name there since he wanted to be cremated, it's nice to have a place to go to see his name next to my Mom and sister. It was nice to have my whole family there too. I felt really supported. The only minorly bad issue is that my kids wanted to go to an old favorite Mexican restaurant and I ate way too much fattening stuff but since it was their favorite, it's calories I'm willing to deal with.

On Father's day we will be scattering my dad and mom's ashes in a state park where they used to camp. I selfishly love all of these opportunities to see my kids and grandkids but it is bittersweet without my dad there to enjoy it too.

    My dad has been gone for almost three years, but my thoughts go to him often. I am glad you have these opportunities - definitely not selfish!
