Getting smaller all the time

The nodes are shrinking. My energy is good. And the weather is perfect here in Toronto.

The service for my father was full of love and warm memories. It couldn't have gone better.

Family rushed in from all over to pay respects and remember. His widow arrived with two sisters from the west.
A dear friend who introduced Patty and me almost 39 years ago was there.

The sad part, the elephant not in my room, was my dad. He's the one I wanted to call and talk to about the memorial. He's the one with whom I want to share the details.

I miss him.

The world is a smaller place without him.

Today we are off to the cemetery.

I'm sorry for your pain, but glad for all the love and memories you have of your Dad. They are what will carry you through the days ahead.
See you at the meeting.

Brian,

I re-read the blog post of July 10 *again* today about your father. I lost my own father on July 9th....41 years ago. He never even knew my husband or his grandchildren (who would have made him SO proud).

There are *still* things I want to tell him, share with him. I write him a letter every year on his Birthday. It always makes me feel as if I have "kept him in the loop" of what is happening in my life.

You are incredibly blessed to have had your father for this long. He must have been a really fantastic man to have had a son like you.

As Ever.
Linda
