I doubt it.
The hardest thing for me to deal with is that my dad was big into cars, just like me. Even to this day, I'll see something on TV about cars that I know he'll like and I catch myself going to tell him about it. That moment when you remember that he's gone is probably the worst thing I've had to deal with...ever.
I was a little helped by the fact that I had to be strong for mom and my little brother. I threw my energy into taking care of them and it's helped. We also started a Christmas tradition of getting together with several other small families here, who are also Bronco fans. We usually spend Thanksgiving and Christmas together.
