Yesterday afternoon my sister and I had to go to the cemetary to approve my dad's grave marker, not a fun chore, it was pretty sad to see his name on it, he was a veteran and the vet assoc. provides their markers, it was pretty, I guess, if you know what I mean, it's not like it's exciting, it is one of those things that just has to be and well, you just do it.  We picked out the granite piece that it will mount on, we did not enjoy this task, as we miss our dad so much it hurts...  After we finished there Terri ask me if I had had lunch and I had not so we decided on McD's since it was right there, we got our lunch and pulled into a parking space and had a picnic lunch, it was nice to spend time visiting with each other, sometimes we just want to talk about our dad and how we are dealing with his loss, after all your siblings are the only ones who know exactly how you feel, we talked, laughed, and enjoyed our lunch on a nice May day, it was just what we needed.

My sister Terri and me!!  Love her!
