it's times like mothers day and fathers day that bring it to mind. do we show them enough that we miss them. i know they are in a better place and that there is no remorse or pain. i know death is for the living, as well as remorse and pain.do you feel the way i do?

I visited my father's grave on special occasions for the first year. I finally realized that I was just visiting a gravesite. I couldn't see my Dad because what I wanted the most was my Dad back. I prefer looking at the pictures I have of him than staring at a gravesite - though it is a lovely one. My mother chose a beautiful design for the headstone. But I also have pictures of that so there is no need to go there. I'm not any closer to him there than I am anywhere else. I can talk to him anywhere at anytime.
