Messages to Dad: Got Through Christmas OK

Hey pops, we got through Christmas, our first without you. It was pretty rough, but all in all, we had each other to get us through it. 

We talked about you a lot, shared a ton of stories, raised a few glasses in your honor and shed some tears. 

Surprisingly enough, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. We had each other to talk to, lean on and hug. 

Guess that's all we can do. It might get easier as the years go on, but from what I'm told by others that have lost loved-ones, it doesn't. It doesn't get worse either. It just continues to be different. 

So I guess we'll keep plugging along; keeping the memories alive and enjoy the moments we had with you as well as enjoying the moments we will have with each other in the years to come.

Here's to hoping that 2013 is by far, a much better year.
