Day 28 Something I miss

02 Mar

Day 28 – Something that  you miss. I miss my daddy. I miss my grandparents. I miss my uncle Eddie. I miss the people I’ve lost. 

DaddyThere are days when no matter how long it’s been since my daddy died, April 1975, I find myself really wishing I could just talk to him. I’d like to know what he thinks about life, love, politics, religion, my kids, my grandson…my nephews. I’d like to just sit down and have a conversation with him over coffee. Same with my (paternal) grandfather. I’d like to sit down with him and my grandparents, all of them, and have a conversation over coffee.

You don’t realize all the things you don’t know or would like to know until after that person is gone.

I’ve lost numerous family members, and the one that stands out the most was the first person I lost–my daddy. I was seven years old. I miss him every single day.

I really wish my children could have met him.

    So sorry to hear about your loss, It strikes hard but I very much believe that though your loved ones are not with you physically they are certainly with you in spirit.

      I believe so, also. But because he died so young, and when I was so young, and then his father died ten years later, there are all these things that I don’t know. Stories I’ll never hear. My children they never met and vice versa…It’s just sad thinking about that part. No matter how long it has been we still miss our loved ones that are gone.

    I am so sorry for your loss. That must have been tough to lose him when you were so young.

      Thank you. It was tough, I was seven and my brother had just turned four. One of the toughest things I’ve ever been through.
