Urn Necklace 

Tonight when I got home from work, I received a big yellow envelope from my Grandma in Alaska. In it contained some gift cards and two smaller white envelopes with “Papa” and “Craig” written on them, father and son. I knew the contents would be their ashes. I couldn’t bring myself to open them for a few hours because somehow, even though it’s almost been a year, it would make their deaths much more real to me. I call and talk to my grandma at least twice a week and I still expect to hear my papa answer the phone. He would always say;

“Well, how Miss Mandy be today? You wanna talk to the old biscuit?”

I miss them both terribly. I will never get use to them being gone.
