Saying Goodbye.


Saying goodbye is never easy.  
So here I am.
 I'm taking it day by day.
 My emotions continue to run wild.
 My heart still aches.
There's this little voice telling me that it's okay to have all of these emotions.
Emotions are good for all of us.
I have my good days. But I also have my bad days.
I  remind myself that, even if the tunnel is dark...
there will be light at the end of that tunnel. 

I took a much needed break from blogging since the passing of my father.
I needed time to be alone, to think and have this time with my family.
I appreciate those of you who have been so kind and supportive through this tough time.

  We made our way to Texas on February 22, 2017. My brother and I planned the funeral to take place on Friday, February 24th. 

The day of the funeral, our father had his full honor ceremony with the Honor Guard. I had requested that the Patriot Guard Riders attend. I am so grateful for those who came out and showed their support. It was a beautiful ceremony. So many people came out to remember our father. 
I had so many emotions run through me. I still can't believe that my dad is no longer here, but I know that he would be so proud of my brother and I. 
Like I said in my last post, I don't honestly think there is anything that can prepare you for the loss of a love one. 

I'll love you forever Dad.
May you rest in paradise.
