Ten years ago we said goodbye to Ben's dad. We still miss him. There is a hole in our lives that he left that hasn't been filled. When I think of him little by little that place fills with love and remembrance. I am so glad it worked out for us to be here today, visiting Ben's mom, getting to hold her and remember. We took Mallory with us to the cemetery; her first comment was, "park." Yes, sweet darling, I looks like a park. It seemed fitting to be there today to hug each other, hold Deloris, smile with Mallory, and to play "Ring Around the Rose-y."
The Lord gives and He takes away. He gave us this beautiful child and he took from our lives wonderful man we still remember and miss.
