Rough Week 6/16/20

Lynn and Robbie June 16, 2010 in Wisconsin on a trip to visit their grandparents.

This is really turning into a difficult week. The closer it gets to Robbie’s birthday, the more upset I become. I have family and friends that have been helping me out with Robbie’s grave, which we are so thankful. I was okay that we couldn’t travel, but then I started falling apart. I know as a Christian that he isn’t there, so I am not sure why this has become so difficult.

It is also probably the first year in my life that we didn’t visit Wisconsin at least for a couple days. I always thought we would move back, but now it doesn’t look like that will ever happen. Even if we could, if would be too far from our girls.

    It was always important to my mom (and still is for my MIL) to visit graves on special occasions or to have someone place flowers for them. My dad died when I was 24. I opted to find a special place where I could remember him. It was closer than his grave which was in Tuttle, and it was difficult for me emotionally to visit the graves anyway. As you said, I know he’s not there. So when I feel a strong need to feel close to my dad, I drive out to the little acreage my dad had when I was growing up. Someone else owns the property now, and it looks nothing the same. But I drive down that dead end road and sit in my car for a minute. It was a place that made my dad happy, and I remember him that way. That’s what works for me. I’ve been doing it since shortly after he died. Not saying it would work for you. I’m the first to say no one knows your grief except you. Your time without Robbie has been months, not years. But today I’m praying that for today, you find rest. 💙🙏🏼💙


  2. Thank you Pam. I am so sorry that you lost your father at such a young age. I appreciate your advice. I like your idea to visit a place that Robbie enjoyed.
