Six months ago...




I wanted to post this yesterday, but I'm a slacker! Yesterday was exactly 6 months since Justin's dad, Damian, passed away! I have been thinking about him so much lately and even found myself crying while going to sleep the other night. I feel like there's so much going on I wish he could be a part of. Justin's mom and I were talking about how Carter has a lot of characteristics of his and I so wish he was around to see them. I wish that Carter could have him as an example growing up because he was such an awesome man. I really felt like he was my dad as much as my other dads...I can hear his tone of voice when he said, "Hi, Holly." He said it the same way every time and I so miss hearing it. It seems like it's been so long since we've seen him and laughed at his crazy jokes! (More like listening to him laugh at himself a lot). But I know he wouldn't like all this sad mushy stuff so I'll share a funny story...

Justin was at scout camp with the young men, so Justin's mom and dad came and picked Carter and I up for his cousin, Ashley's, wedding. On the way there, Mom was telling a story about the book of mormon and how some copies were destroyed at BYU a long time ago and he interrupted her and said, "Rena, who tells you these things?!" Mom replied, "It doesn't matter where I know this from, I just do, okay?" He kept instigating her and making her more frustrated and then he just started laughing at her. It was pretty much the funniest conversation I've ever witnessed between these two! And for those of you that know them, you can imagine how funny it truly was! I always think about that. It was so "Dad" to push Mom's buttons and laugh at her. Mom was always so forgiving of those moments and ended up laughing with him at the end =) Gotta love the sense of humor of these Wagasky boys!
