it's done

i keep coming back to my dad. you all know how much i miss him, every day, even though it's been almost 8 years since he died.

it was brought back to me again, tonight.

i'm watching the oscars, and they did they're usual "in memoriam" thing, and the last name to come up was Paul Newman. Paul Newman was my dad's age, almost exactly. I always connected the two. Somehow, as long as he was out there, kicking it, it was ok. But Paul Newman's gone, now. And, so, too, is my dad.

Giant Virtual Hugs Minnie. It's hard when those reminders hit us. I think we'll miss our dads all of our lives. (My dad has also been gone almost 8 years, died may 7, 2001)

Just wanted you to know I understand.
