Shannon, the boys, and me


Here’s Shannon with the boys and me back on March 21, 2002. Katie was away at school, I imagine. Pretty nice-looking group, huh?

I’m so proud of my kids. I love each one of them. And I love my wife so much. How I miss her already.

It was another pleasant day at home with the kids. I don’t believe I cried today. There were a few moments of sadness, of course, but I don’t think I cried. I can’t think of anything in particular we did today other than sleeping in too late again and getting dinner at In-N-Out this evening. We also played a few games after dinner, which was fun.

Early Saturday morning, I take Andy to the airport. A few hours later, I take Paul and Melissa. I’m really going to miss those guys. Katie, Cliff, and Mia are staying a bit longer and my mom gets here on Sunday, so we’ll continue to have plenty of company. Which is still a good thing.

How my heart aches when I think of Shannon! I know it sounds silly, but I keep thinking of things I want to tell her. And I really want to just snuggle up and sleep with my arm around her once more. I’m hoping these feelings will fade a bit with time.

I’ve been working today on some of the business things that need to be taken care of, such as contacting the life insurance company. Not my favorite thing in the world, but it needs to get done. I still don’t have any copies of the official death certificate and nobody is likely to accomplish much until that happens, but I can at least get the process started.

It’s getting late already and I need to get going. Have a great weekend.

See you on Monday.
