I made it through the day pretty well. A big thanks to all my LJ friends who remembered the day with me!

I went up to his room and put together a set of T-shirts that would make a nice quilt. B and I went to the grave together, where we noticed someone had left a rock on the headstone and a Mountain Dew bottle. (Mountain Dew was his favorite drink). I thought that was pretty cool, and I set the bottle into the flowers so that no one would throw it away.

I saw two ambulances that looked exactly like the one I followed to the hospital.

I re-read cards people had sent us.

I am very glad I did not go into work, so that I could feel however I wanted to feel without worrying about what someone else saw.

So a year has gone by, and he is still gone.

I am glad you made it through yesterday! I thought of you often! And prayed for you on the days leading up to the day and the day itself too. I have lived through the day my dad died (12/24) for 3 years now so I know how hard it can be. I find it's such a relief when it's finally come and gone. I hope Arnold was very sweet to you and helped you through it!
