    I had a dad who talked with me
    Who gave me the right to disagree
    To question, and always answered me
    As well as he could, and truthfully

    He talked of adventures
    The horrors of war
    Of life, it's meaning, what love was for

    How each would always need to strive
    To improve the world, to keep it alive
    Stressed the duty we owe each other
    To be aware each man is a brother

    Words for laughter he also spoke
    A silly song, a happy joke

    Time runs along
    Some say I'm wise
    That I look at life with seeing eyes

    My heart is happy
    My mind is free

    I had a father who talked with me.

    ---

    RIP dad, love you! xoxo

    Dad,

    I have been mismanaging my money, paying for things I don't need or that aren't even my account. I have had three issues with my car, two of which could have been avoided, and that cost me about $1500 or maybe $2k. I have missed two flights. Left my keys in the front door. Or my packages out front, forgetting to bring them inside. This morning I walked away after buying my coffee. Without my coffee.

    That said, I know you believed in me. I resolve to go see my rector this week. To begin to set my details in order. It won't be like this forever. I will talk to you more. That might help.

    Wow, talk to you more. That struck a resonant chord, and not an easy one to play. That is a strong clue that I must do it.

    Mom,
    There's so much I wish I could tell you about. Thomas is taking all AP classes this year for college credit, did good on his ACT test Friday, hasn't gotten his score back yet but feels confident. I asked Jonna Lynn to be my wife, I know it's quick but it just feels like everything is in place for us this time. I got approved for my mortage loan, surprisingly only took about 5 mins to get approved then an hour on the phone doing paperwork. I've got so many plans for the house and barns, so many little things that will add up in the long run, like redoing the walls, right now it's got some old paneling that is hideous, going to take the old tounge and groove boards out of the old house in Al, plans them down, use them to replace the paneling then stain them, have the floors refinished, do away with all the old carpet, so it's just hardwood floors throughout, put in a fixed whole home genset that runs on propane so in case the power goes out it'll kick on immediately. So much to do and to tell you

    I miss you today, very much. I had that type of feeling where you feel so lonely and yet the only one who could take away that loneliness, cannot.

    I sat wondering where you are, your spirit, if you're at peace now. Wishing somehow time could rewind itself and give me more time with you.

    You weren't ready to leave and I wasn't ready for you to go. Now I am stuck here wondering where you are and if you know I am missing you.

    I need your words and company tonight. I hope you're around me somehow.

    You always told me, don't cry, it's wasted energy. So I will try not to. But my heart feels sad today for you.

    Well, I suppose this is something that will be useful to some but I prefer to write a letter to my deceased friends/family and then keep reading in in private until I no longer need to read it and then I burn it and let go with the smoke and ashes.

    Hey Mom, I'm a hot mess right now. Almost Christmas, the first since you passed. Glad we got to spend the last one together

    Both of you gone. First Christmas without you. Where ever you are, you know this hurts. But I am trying.
