A Box of Rain will ease the pain and love will see you through - Box of Rain

Hey Dad,
I'm writing to wish you a Happy Father's Day. I miss you but feel certain that things are better up there than they are down here. You know we're at war. It would break your heart.
As you know, Mom and all of us are doing fine but missing you still as much as we did the day you left. I'm so grateful you didn't suffer and went quickly after the surgery.
I hope your knee doesn't bother you much up there. I imagine there are no ailments. Please give all the family a big hug for me and special kisses for Skinny and Ric. Let them know I look forward to seeing them all on the other side one day!
Love,
Helen
PS-Hope there's lots of hot dogs & Sauerkraut for you! (Is there cream soda in heaven?)

thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes I live in a very dangerous neighborhood, downtown LA is not Vermont. My cousin lives in londonderry, vermont and her minature donkey just died. She paints murals and is very talented and very Vermontish (is that a word?)

Vermontish is a word. Vermontish is a very good word. If everyone loved in Vermont we'd be better off. Well, other than the fact that it would be very crowded.

Hi Helen... found you via BlogExplosion.

That was a very nice note to your Dad. I lost my Dad very suddenly in January and can completely relate to how you feel.

Hope you have a nice day.

Touching post from your heart. I have spent all last week during spare moments, trying to write a post about Father's Day to my dad who also has passed, but the words are a jumble. Nothing felt write to post, so I thought the words instead, cried a bit, laughed a little, and tried to let him go...again.
Bleary and teary-eyed for all of us who have lost a father

Ok...I'm here in tears. You know that I am terminally ill and this made me really think. Do you think they have good music there? I'll need that. I can sit around and listen to Cobain and Tupac and eat hot dogs and kraut with your dad.

God bless you Helen my friend.
