Is it weird...

Gracie waitin' for me to wake up

... that I've saved a few of my dad's phone messages over the past few months... and I keep playing them just to hear his voice?

I miss the hell out of that ornery old man and it's still hard to believe he's actually gone - but then again - for the ugly way he was disrespected up to, during and after his death... I hope he's resting. That man, if ever there was one, deserved to rest.

But I don't think he is. Yet.

That's all I have to say today.

NOT weird to save his phone messages. Or if it is, we're the same kind of weird. You know I lost someone important to me a few years ago because I've talked about it a little, and my understanding of grieving after a loss. For what it's worth - he died 5/9/07. And I still have his last few messages.

I don't think it's weird that you (or anyone) would keep messages from a lost loved one. I think it would be comforting to be able to hear their voice.

I have an old cassette tape of my Dad talking to my boys. Hard to find a cassette player anymore, so I keep an old one around.

My Dad died 19 years ago.

Keep on, however you need to. It's no one else's business.


Just today I was sooooo wishing I still had any of my Mom's voice mails for anything. There isn't much I wouldn't do to hear her again. 2 1/2 years and I still cry at least once a day. So no, its no weird. Glad that you have them. Hope they make you feel a bit better.
Be well.
