Lately, I have been thinking a lot about how much I miss the man on the right in the pic below.
This photo was taken only 6 months before we lost my father-in-law.
Not a day goes by that he isn't on my mind.
When I look at his picture, it literally hurts.
I honestly cannot come to terms with his absence.
I want my husband to have his father again.
I want my mother-in-law to have her best friend again.
I want my boys to have their Pop again.
How long does it take for the sadness to go away?
Maybe it's the holiday season approaching.
The first Thanksgiving without Ed.
The first Christmas without Ed.
Who will do the scavenger hunt for the boys?
It was always Pop.
How freaking perfect everything was 10 months ago...
