Oct 1… the first birthday without him…

Oct 1 – It’s a bittersweet day

It would have been his 85th birthday…

Instead I’m reminiscing on his 84th birthday

We will get together with family today

those who were together with him on his last day

Oct 1 won’t be the same

But getting together today will give us another chance to heal

We will be together and do what we do


Reminisce, eat… be…

and heal…

It’s bittersweet… family is the sweet part!

  1. Praying tyat you can all treasure the memories and be thankful for the hlessing of having him in your life. May the God of all comfort comfort you.


    • Oh Deanna, we do… his legacy runs so deep in our family. And we are so grateful for the time we had with him. Bittersweet… and a little more difficult than I thought it would be.
