A year ago we lost you Dad. I'm writing this post, hoping that it helps the healing. How much I wish you were still here yet relieved that you aren't suffering anymore. Such a great loss. How you are missed. I feel there's a hole in my life. Though the kids knew you a little as Gramps, they will miss out on knowing you as an adult. How you liked to laugh, how you loved to tease; these are all treasured memories now. I like to think that you taught me your sense of humour, playfulness, fairness, integrity, morals and ethics. That I carry that part of you with me always, to pass onto my kids. Who will hopefully pass on to their kids so that your legacy of the kind of person you were and our memories of you get carried on. This is 'bullshit' Dad, this is 'bullshit'.
