Thinking of you today…

We love you and miss you.

We love you and miss you.

2 years…Seems Like Yesterday


Next Sunday July 5th will be the second anniversary of my father’s death. Having lost my mother only 6 months ago, makes it even more difficult this year. Just when I thought I had mended my heart over dad….mom passes away.

Everywhere I go in town brings up memories of my parents. Favorite restaurants and frequently visited stores, all make me think of them. Driving past their home around the corner gets me thinking of all the good times we had in the swimming pool. BBQing poolside and too many cocktails on the patio with friends and family to recall. As well as the final days of dad’s life. I wonder what mom and dad are doing up in heaven? I think about it everyday. Do they watch me? Can they see the direction of my life? I hope….

Last photos….memories for life

We were very lucky as a family to be able to share Christmas 2015 with my mother and our immediate family members. Little did we know it would be our last; we would have mom’s funeral 30 days later. We cherish the last family photos taken the night of Christmas Eve with my mother. 

Tribute to you Mother

Room for Two In Heaven


On January 16th we lost our mother a short 18 months after my father. We were not expecting her to pass…as a family we were caught off guard. My mother did an admirable job of trying to continue on with her life after my dad died. Although, her heart ached for him everyday. On Monday we will say our final goodbye to our mom. Dad awaits her in heaven with loving arms. Room for two in heaven.

Merry Chistmas Dear Papa…Love You!


59 Years of Marriage, A True Partner

59 Years of Marriage, A True Partner


This November 9th would have been my parent’s 59th Wedding Anniversary.

Without the presence of my father, our family has awkwardly made it thru different family gatherings, holidays and anniversaries.

I am proud of my entire family of the progress we have made in each of these areas.

I was recently asked “has it gotten better for your family?” I don’t ever think it gets better, I think it’s just tolerable.

Able to be endured.
