I love the song by Sarah MacLaughlin, but I never realized how much it would mean to me.   February 9, 2009 marks 6 months since my Dad died.  Hey I can type that without crying.   That’s major progress for me.  I think of him constantly and still say and do things before remembering that he’s actually gone.  There’s still a sense of the surreal for me.  Since it hurts less today than it did 6 months ago, I’m assuming that in a year it will be even easier. 

I’ll still remember you, Dad.  Love doesn’t fade.
