To lose someone you love is to alter your life forever. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. This hole in your heart is the shape of the one you lost - no one else can fit it. I miss you Granddaddy.
If you can't get to this ceremony, perhaps you can recreate one in your community: The Lantern Floating in Hawaii gives people a personal moment to remember, reflect, and offer gratitude to those who came before us. It's a chance to be surrounded by the love, understanding, and support of others who are experiencing many of the same feelings and emotions.
The moment that you left me, my heart was split in two; one side was filled with memories; the other side died with you . Remembering you is easy, I do it every day; but missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I miss you Dad
