One Year Ago
My Dad died one year ago today. My nephew died 12 days ago today.
It’s funny that I have missed Sheldon more in the last 12 days then I have missed my Dad in the last 365.
And now I look at your picture Dad and the 365 days come crashing in.
Dad thank you for crossing over time and space to let Sheldon know that he would be with you and that he would not be alone. You always liked to do things in a big way.
I love you Dad and I especially miss you today.
Prayers for the dead are on the same footing as gifts for the living. The angel goes in to the dead with a tray of light, bearing a cloth of light, and says ‘This is a gift for your from your brother so-and-so, from your relative so-and-so.’ And he delights in it just as a living man rejoices in a gift.
