You left 1095 days ago and every year in December since 2017 I get nostalgic.
Around the first of the month, I get a little sad.
I miss you
We all do
While the days and months are easier, December is still hard.
2020 has been weird. You would be so weary of this quarantine nonsense. You would roll your eyes and make all kinds of noises allowing everyone to know your disgust with the whole dang thing.
Today, as I put away Christmas decorations, I began to think of some of my friends who have had to say goodbye to someone close to them this year.
At the same time, I thought that you might be spending time with them! They were your friends too and I smiled a little just thinking about it.
When Robby busted through those gates, wirey little thing that he was, I could just seeing him whopping and hollering like he used to for his favorite sports team. I bet you hollered right beside him as you welcomed him in.
I bet you hugged Pat Ball just like you used to when you stepped into the church each and every Sunday. I hope she talked about me just a little. I miss that old girl a bunch.
Sy had the biggest smile when he got there didn’t he? He probably had on his cute hat and he patted you great big on your back when you met up. Give him a great big hug from me. Ok?
Just last week, Suzy showed up in Heaven. Christi is so sad and misses her something fierce but I bet she might be comforted knowing that she’s with you, Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Dick. (I wish I had a photo ❤️)
I bet you are in the welcoming committee. You, Billy, Buford, Al and all your other old croanies. Sitting next to your old cars, playing some honky tonk and shooting the breeze. Are you still kicking butt at dominoes? Kate thinks she wins down here 🙄
Be super sweet to my friends who are new there. Their families are sad and the holidays are extra hard. You were always good at making people smile.
Moms doing fine. The family is growing again and another little boy will learn about Papa PeeWee soon.
We are all taking good care of one another. Don’t you worry.
I’ll meet you at the gate.
Your baby girl
