Definitely don't feel silly. When we did my DS's thank you letters for Christmas and I said to DH that it felt funny not writing to my Grandpapa - he died almost two years ago. However, I know that he is still around when I need him, just like my darling great grannie is around sometimes for me too.

Thank you.

I still can't believe she has gone. sad

That happens to me all the time, my father died five years ago. It's still automatic. It was a bit disturbing at first, when I had to remember he wasn't here - now I like that it still happens. I think about him every day of my life.

me too VintageGardeniasad

I was recently at an elderly uncles funeral and my cousins were all saying how much they'd miss their dad, I'm ashamed to say all I could think of was how lucky they were to have had him for that longblush

I would have given almost anything to have had my dad walk me down the aisle or see our dc's when we had children.
