Just remembering

When I'm sad, like I am today,
I try to find something to fill the emptiness.
So I looked up all the pictures I have of my Grandpa Dent.
(And, if I'm being honest, I also opened a bag of candy corn,
because, as we know, I suffer from kummerspeck.)

The pictures were equal parts healing and heart-breaking.
But mostly healing.

Summer 1979:
Grandpa holding me when I was new.

October 2001:
Grandpa holding my first baby when HE was new.

November 2002:

May 2003:
Two Grandpas asleep on the couch (after Angie's wedding).

September 2004:

August 2010:
A lunch with the family in Salt Lake City.

Introducing Kate through the wonders of Skype.

That was a sweet little trip down Memory Lane.
I'm glad to have all these pictures in one place.
But I think I need more candy.
