We Thought Of You Today

Life is starting to settle back into a new "normal" after losing Dad on June 9, 2012.  After going through all the things that are necessary when losing a family member, the emotions seem to catch up when life carries on.  I find myself checking to see if Dad's lights are on when I get up through the night, only to realize that he's gone....  It seems like such a hard blow when I realize it, but I was there when he left us, so I know it's true.  Why do our minds play such awful tricks? I guess all this is normal, but I just can't seem to REALLY believe he's gone.

Bye, Dad - I miss you! 

We Thought Of You Today

We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.

We think of you in silence
And make no outward show.
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know.

Remembering you is easy,
We do it everyday.
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away

In Loving Memory Of John Ronald (Ron) Tapp

I still can't believe it either Audrey. There is such an emptiness. More for you because he lived so close.
I am sure he is looking down on all of us.


Very nice picture of Dad Audrey. My mind seems to want to think about what he may need, what appointments he has coming up. We were lucky to have spent a lot of time with him going here and there. It will take a while for us to get used to not doing those things. I'm sure it is automatic for you to look towards his place to see what he is up to. Love, Karen
