This would have been Ame's 27th birthday.

I'm mostly over the grieving now, more than a quarter-century after our middle daughter was stillborn. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that our other daughters have both moved out, so that we see them only every month or two. In a sense, Ame's a little closer than that now. It's ok.

I'm okay. It's actually been three years since I last posted, and that was a short one, a couple of days late. We don't have much to talk about these days.

Good night, Ame. I love you.

Good night, Daddy. I love you too.

<3 Thank you, mdlbear, for reminding me that family is still with us even when they are gone.

Often, now, I imagine Rene being next to me as we hug each other side-by-side, her head on my shoulder , my head leaning on her curls. She gives me comfort, still. Love endures.

(That's the userpic she used.)

As it happens, today is my daughter Rose's 6th birthday party (the happy day is actually on the 9th).

That said, the spectre of loss is with us - my wife's bone marrow transplant didn't work - she's still got leukemia, and she's in the hospital right now for treatment. She'll probably get home in a few weeks.

Unless she doesn't. Last year she had pneumonia, a cardiac arrest, and leukemia, this year they tried to kill off a major organ (bone marrow) with chemo and radiation, and replaced it with stem cells from her brother. I'm kinda worried.

A filk I remember started with the quotation "of all sad words of mouth or pen, the saddest are these: 'It might have been'." (I may have messed it up - but I think I got the spirit.)

It's good that you're okay - it's good that you grieve. I hope you're doing well, and are happy.
