Father's Day ... a particularly difficult day to think about. It opens up too many wounds that have yet to begin to heal. With my father passing six weeks before my husband, I have barely acknowledged his absence. I love this photo of my husband with That Baby, as he always called her. It captures the continuum (a continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not perceptibly different from each other, although the extremes are quite distinct) of life. Two months after her birth, he was diagnosed terminal. This is a picture of a man conforming his heart to The Will of God. Thank you, Lord God, for families and fathers and life.

Wade 1971, thank you for your encouragement.  I'm so sorry for your losses also.  My mother, father, and husband all passed in the same year.  Then my only sibling suffered two major strokes three weeks after my husband passed.  His short term memory is basically nil, so at times I do get overwhelmed by all that is gone.  I teach at a nearby school, and am thankful to God for my job, my children, and grandchildren.  However; I will never get over my husband. I don't even want to.  But that is not to say that I do not seek joy every day, and know that I am still here for a reason, the biggest being seeing my adult children through all of our losses.  God is good, all the time.  Love to you and your boys.
