Since my last post I have lost a lot.  Through all the Florida trips and concern for my Dad and losing him on March 8 I have lost my last parent.  The feeling is different.  No more calls checking in to see how he’s doing or visa versa.  It’s the part of life where you get to become the oldest in the family.  Not sure I like that really.  There’s no one else at the top.

We are now in NJ visiting all the places that connect me to both parents.  I can keep my memories alive by all the sites, sounds, tastes, and smells of my childhood growing up here.  It’s a lot of fun telling my kids all the wonderful things I remember about my parents and how I grew up.

It was the best childhood anyone could want.

Thanks Mom & Dad
