Wow! This week has been so difficult to plan a wedding while grieving the loss of my dad. It's been four months now he suddenly passed. He was the source of most of my support and direction in life as a whole. When I told him the news of our engagement he was soooooooo happy and excited, of course this came after his joke. Although, to be honest he wasn't that keen on the suit idea heh heh.
I know he's around and guiding me in his own way but it's still very trying to move like I don't miss him being here with me...I am so happy he was able to chat with my fiance and give me his blessings on our union. I know he approves of this step so I am not worried.
My fiance and I are in a long distance relationship so the option to reach out and dive into his loving arms is not readily available. However a phone call just isn't the same so I have to dig up the inner strength to rise above this low period, on my own....not without a few tears first though.

I know how you feel. I lost my dad in 2009 and though my brother will walk me down the aisle its still hard. Myself and my FH both have decided to pay homage to our lost ones with these charms. Mine will be on my bouquet and my FH will wear his on his boutinerre. You can also keep these to put on a necklace or bracelet
