Some Cuff Links and a Tie pin

photo(2)

Are all I have of my dads.  He passed away 30 years ago this month from cancer when I was 22.  The cuff links were from his wedding to my mom, the the tie pin was from donating blood to the red cross, that particular one was for 11 gallons, we have an 18 pin also that my sister has.

I have lost both parents to cancer.  I have lost grand parents, Aunts, Uncles.  I have lost a cousin and a niece to accidental overdoses at much to young an age.  I have lost friends that I was close to, and even ones I hardly knew.  The loss of anyone is horrible, and we all grieve in our own ways. There are times when the loss of my dad seems like a short time ago, and others when it seems a life time.  I try to remember the good times.  But in the end all I have are some cuff links and a tie pin.
