I think everyone's questions that I missed today have been answered. If not, post again and I'll try to get back to you.

I'm so sorry. I lost my dad several years ago, and I still miss him every day. It does get easier though, and I can see him in my children.

Thanks guys! 4 more days!

We've always addressed ours to: CSR/Room Assigners. I then write something like:

Dear Friends at the CSR:

We are arriving for our much anticipated trip on _______, ______, __, 2009. We would be most appreciative if we could have a room in Casitas 4 or Casitas 5 as this is our favorite section.


Hope this helps!

Kathy. I lost my dad 10 years ago, and there are still days that I find myself reaching for the phone to talk to him. And I do hear his advice in my head when I'm facing a difficult problem. It does get easier, but he's still missed.

Same here.
I am glad that you were able to have the day off.
My sisters and I always take my Dad's B-day off and go to the restaurant that he took us to every year when we went shopping for my Mom's Christmas gift.

Kathy I am so sorry and I hope you are right that every day gets easier. After a long battle with Alzheimers, cancer, and kidney problems we lost my dad March 10th. It hasn't been quite two months yet and my mom seems like a lost soul. She lives with me, because he has been in the nursing home for the last five years, but she went to the home every Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sun to see him. She was always as regular as clockwork, leaving the house at 10:00am. Her life revolved around him and that nursing home. It's been almost two months now, but some days she will still start a conversation with, "I need to go to the nursing home to see Warren", then she'll stop and say she just can't believe he is gone. It's like he's still with us and neither of us can shake that feeling. He was 78 y/o. Anyway, my point is that I can empathize with you. Due to the horrible year he had this year and all he went through, I wouldn't wish him back for anything, but I sure miss him. He hasn't known us for the last several years, but he was still my dad.
