Yesterday was dedication day. My Mom, Daughter Kennedy, and Sisters Deb and Danielle, picked up Dad's ashes from Mourning Glory and got him settled at the Columbarium. It was an emotional day. Kennedy wanted to come, needed to come, so she was let off school for the day and was I ever glad she was there. She carried Grandpa around in his urn for a bit before we put him in his nook... Now I'm on the hunt for a mini cribbage board and rake and hoe :). Kennedy and I got tiny urn pendants that lay on our hearts, Dad will always be with us. Mom started talking about when she passes away, I just put my arm around her and said, please stop talking about that, and she smiled... and stopped :). Hard day. We sat in front of Dad's nook (I don't know what else to call it), tears were shed, hugging was abundant, and I was once again reminded of how important it is to live every day to the fullest... just like my Dad did. I miss you Dad, so much... not a day goes by that I don't think of you... and smile.
