I know it gets easier eventually, but I think I’m ready NOW

It's been almost 8 weeks since my dad passed away.  I think it's been harder these past few weeks for me than it was those first few weeks.  Maybe before it was as if he were just gone on a trip, without phone service or something.  I still pick up the phone thinking I should call him or text him, thankfully I haven't made it past picking up the phone before realizing...My brother and I have been going thru my dad's things, organizing, etc.  We bagged up all of his clothes and each took a few … [Continue reading]
