I think I still had this vision of them as I did when they were younger.
My folks weren't terribly sickly through the years. No cancers or things like that. Sure, they had issues like everyone does... but nothing chronic like so many of their friends. I think a part of me just planned for them to stick around "at least" through their 90's.
I still can't really wrap my head or heart around them being gone.
No, I'm not expecting a phone call or anything like that. It is just this feeling of disbelief. I guess as time goes by, it will wear off. But I have to wonder.
I love these collages my sisters put together for the memorial. They are stuffed with photos of my parents in different times of their lives. I'm so happy they thought to do this. My mom would have totally approved!
