four years ago today,

by grace on May 18, 2017

my dad died.  it’s weird to think of it being four years ago.

here’s an old photo of mom and dad at a going-away party for somebody, many many years ago.  i have no memory whatsoever of this event, but i know i was there because i saw a picture of me at the event.  i looked like i was having fun.

mom and dad are singing the song “Big D” from musical  “the most happy fella,” which they were in many, many years ago.  i went to rehearsals with them all the time and still remember many of the words to many of the songs.  and yet i don’t remember being at this party.

dad loved las vegas.  amy bought this little pink monkey for dad when he was in the hospital, and she brought it to las vegas with her when we went there on may 2nd.  dad would have loved our rooms at the Signature suites.

and here’s amy and me at the Bellagio Hotel Conservatory and Gardens – this is called “japanese spring,” and dad loved everything japanese.  this was may 3rd, his birthday.

in a cab going to see Cher at the Monte Carlo.

we miss our dad.

ok then,

mrs. h.
