The internment

Dad was interred today. We always thought he'd want to be scattered over the edge of a boat (we had discussed ways we could covertly scatter them off the back of a river cruise somewhere, which usually involved me creating some sort of diversion and my sisters hurriedly emptying the casket!) As it got more of a reality to Dad, he said he wanted to be laid to rest in the cemetery in the place we'd all grown up. Me and one of my sisters still live here so its a comfort knowing I can visit him whenever I want. It was an emotional and difficult day but I'm glad its all done with now. 

I miss him terribly, and think about all the things I never asked him. I would give anything to have one last day with him. Hopefully we'll meet again one day
