I want to start by saying I thank God I have my daughter and David. I love that I have my dad but that is a whole different story now that his Alzheimers and Dementia are worsening. But I am thankful for Lindsay and David because tomorrow is the 4 year anniversary of losing my first husband, Bob, the father of my kids. The date was 6/17. Ironically, on the date 7/16 will be the 3 year anniversary of losing my son. 6/20 is also Bob’s Heavenly Birthday. He would have been 59 this year.
Lindsay’s birthday is July 6th so I will always have that bit of sunshine to brighten this month.
David is so wonderful to my beautiful daughter, so that helps me get through Father’s Day without both Bob and my “adult” father.
I don’t like to harp on the sadness but I do feel compelled to talk about it, to give their memories, Bob’s and my son’s, mention as it is a part of my life that holds both wonderful memories and dreadful sorrow.
The last time I was up in CT to visit I fixed up the site at the cemetery and today one of Joey’s closest friends sent me this picture, as he puts a motorcycle helmet with Joey’s name on it to honor his friend (until winter!).
