My father's birthday is coming up.

In 18 days, my father would have been 69. My brother, sister and I will spend a few silent moments by his grave, marking the occasion.

It's still weird not having him around. It never really gets any easier, and I suspect it will be like that for the next ten years. Or at least until the lease on the graveyard runs out in seven years time. Once that happens, we need to figure out if we want to keep the site, or give it up to someone else. If we have had enough time to grieve properly, or if we still need a few years to truly process it.

No matter what, his birthday will be a weird one.
