Sad day

Yesterday would have been my dad's 61st birthday.
I've been pretty sad all week.
I'm just trying to keep my mind on other things.
The sadness creeps in though.

Here's my dad on a tank in Vietnam. He is the guy who is sitting the highest.

And dad with Elizabeth in the summer of 2004.

GREAT pictures. And I just want to say that I'm very sorry about your dad and feel your pain. My Daddy would have been 56 this Thursday (he passed away at 51) so I'm going through all those similar emotions. And of course the upcoming holiday adds salt to those wounds. :-( Just let yourself feel those emotions and take care of yourself!

I'm sorry you lost your dad Jessey. And I'm sorry you're sad. Sending you love!

My dad would have been 71... be happy that you dad got to meet one of your kids. I have a hard time when I think that my dad never met his grandkids.

Anyway, I'm sorry. I feel your pain. Big (((((HUGS))))))).

That really is the part that hurts alot right now. Especially since Dylan's pretty much my dad's spitting image and namesake, Kenneth L-A-D-N-Y became Dylan Kenneth. Get it?
My dad passed away the summer I was pregnant with Dylan, so that was extra difficult and *probably* attributed to the many problems I had during his pregnancy.
God, I just know he would love Dylan so much. And I know he's watching over us but it isn't much comfort.

I am so sorry for your loss. Both of my parent are gone now. My in-laws did a few years ago within 10 days of each other. Keep the good thoughts close to your heart.
