    It's not stupid. **gentle hug**

    My father passed in 1996. I still buy him cards, and he was into lottery tickets...so i buy him a ticket, a card, write a note, and i stuff it in the hole under the vase on his grave.

    I watch the tree that was planted near him, how it grows each year. I go and I talk to him. I cry. i yell. I apologize profusely to him.

    It's not easy, hun. **hug**

    i didnt have a father growing up and i was homeless, but my fallen mates in the army has always been in my mind, every anzac day my mates would go to the pub and buy a drink, we also buy a drink for our fallen comrades. its not stupid of you in any way, its just a way of you remembering your father, just as the same way i remember my mates

    be happy with what you have, your father loved you and would wantyou to be happy :)
