Father’s Day 2024

Happy father’s day to all the dads, grandads, uncles, brothers, husbands, and certainly a few moms who stood in for fathers.

I miss my dad, he’s been gone for over 2 years now. I’m going through a rough patch personally and I miss going to him for advice. I know that he would try to get me to see all sides of every issue and ultimately help me choose the side that I know is right in my heart already.

I’d like to say that I’m still a bit mad at him for not preparing me for every single thing I’d come up against. But that’s just not fair is it?


Today we went to see my husband’s family’s graves at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis. We saw his dad’s, and two grandpas and two grandma’s graves. It’s quite a sight to see all those white headstones, so many areas, and so many new areas too. It’s always growing, being filled with men and women, a never-ending cycle.

Hug your dads if you got’em, folks. -krisgo
