My Trip to Say GoodBye to Daddy

After a 36 hour bus ride with Jace, we finally made it to Kansas.
Daddy's Vigil was so hard for me. 
I was doing okay until then....
and the reality hit and boy did it hit me hard.
It still doesn't seem possible that Daddy is gone
and I don't think a day will go by that I don't think about him
and feel his love.

 This is a picture of me and my mom and siblings.
  My foster brother surprised all of us and came to the services.
  It was so nice to see him again!

 Here are my Daddy's girls.
Robyn, Sherry, Stacey and Cathy.

 and it's amazing what a little wine and beer
will do to cheer up a broken heart!

and this is my sister, Robyn, who put up with me on both of my trips back home.
She spoiled my rotten too!

So besides the trip being a hard one to make, it was so nice to see my mom, siblings and my stepmom and her family.  We got to laugh together, tell stories, and cry together.  Daddy would have been happy to see us all together and supporting each other. 

I want to say a special thank you to my Stepmom, Carol,
for making sure I got to be home and grieve with my family and not here by myself.
