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**
