Remembering Tim - One Year On.

I'm back again! Just for a short little post as today is the one year anniversary of Vala's grandfathers passing.

It's hard to believe that it has been a whole year, one rotation around the sun, since Tim lost his battle with brain cancer and left this earth. The pain is still so fresh, it doesn't feel as though that much time has passed. I've had a little cry in secret but have not told Vala what today is. For one, I'm not sure she'd fully understand and if she did, I'm not sure I want to inflict that pain and sadness on her again. Jordan thinks I still haven't fully accepted Tim's passing and that, I never really let myself grieve properly. A lot of Tim's sudden diagnosis and passing still hangs heavily over me. He was so healthy and happy and everything changed overnight; it was so sudden. I'm not as healthy as he was and things like my liver problem, scare me more than they previously would have. Tim is always close in my heart, reminding me that life is short and precious and to cherish what time we have on this earth. He was a giant of a man with a heart as big as he was tall. He has left a gaping hole in the hearts of everyone who knew him and life can't be the same without him. We miss him dearly and now, on the first anniversary of his passing, I want to express my love and adoration for my father-in-law. I will always remember him and what he did for me and my family. We'll never stop loving and missing him.

Until next time,
