This post brought tears to my eyes. I could totally picture you and your dad sitting in his backyard, enjoying cake and talking. I believe one day you can have that conversation!

It also brought back memories of the church I went to in California every summer when I lived with my grandparents. It was an LDS church, but was like no other LDS church. It was once a country club for a golf course and then converted to an LDS building. It was two stories and had a kids' playground. I remember it up on a hill and surrounded by palm trees. I loved the look of it and wish I had a picture.

I didn't realize that the funeral was held in Dad's church. How odd that I've never thought of him as a youth, going to church. I wonder what he thought of that building. I'm actually surprised it's still there - so many of the older buildings have been remodeled or torn down.

I wish you could have that conversation with him, too. Strangely, I had a dream about him the other night. He was outside mom's house, sitting in a wheelchair in the flower bed. We went out to talk to him and he eventually came inside, where I fussed about, trying to take a picture of all of us. I didn't get to talk to him much because I was too worried about the photo op. Now I'm sad I didn't talk to him more in the dream. xoxo
