I was talking to Mom today and saying that yesterday sucked. It really really sucked. She agreed. We had everyone over last night for supper because I didn't think we needed to be alone. And I think I was right.
1 month ago yesterday at 4:25ish in the morning all of my lights, the tv and the radio went on in our room. I'm confident that was Dad's final, I love you Jenny. And it sucks. I would give almost anything to have him back. But I can't have him back so I have to find a way to deal with it. Time heals, and I know that but man time is flying very very slowly. About a month before he died he told me I could grieve for 2 months. It was his joking way of saying life goes on. I told him last night that, that was quite optimistic and I don't think I'll make his deadline.
I read this obit, probably once a week. Its my dad through and through. I miss him so much!
| Chris February 7, 1947 - February 8, 2009 , loving husband of Margaret; father to Jennifer and Matt; father-in-law to Sal M and A B; and grandfather to Izzie and Emily M, passed away after a hard-fought battle with Kidney Cancer, one day after his 62nd birthday. To those who knew him: On the 19th hole, raise a glass to him; on your motorcycle, enjoy the beauty of the open road; in your rose garden, nurture a rose for him; when talking politics, debate heartily for him; in your workshop, when you build it, build it well and build it to last; and finally, when with your children or grandchildren, laugh and enjoy them; but most of all live well, love much and enjoy your life. Chris and Dad - you will never be far from our hearts. Funeral Services will be held at St. Paul's Anglican Church (7 Sunmills Green S.E.) on Friday, February 13, 2009 at 2:00 p.m.|
