I wish I could feel one more hug...
I wish I could hear one more "Top 'o the morning to you!"
or one more "How ARE you Sheila?"
I wish I could see him one more time
he would look into my eyes and listen... really LISTEN.
I wish I could share a laugh with him and gain strength from his smile
I wish I could share one more day, one more hour, one more minute with my dad....
Oh, how i miss his belief in me and his huge bear hugs. His love was truly unconditional, always. This is my post from facebook:
Remembering my dad on what would have been his 86th birthday... he was a man with more heart than a million men, and yet it was his heart that failed him when he was only 69. he was a remarkable man... he gave the most amazing bear hugs filled with unconditional love, he greeted us with a cheery "Top 'o the morning and a ready smile, he listened... really listened and cared more than words could tell... He laughed and gave strength from his smile and his belief in each of us... I can attribute much of what I have become to my dad and my mom... who was his true soul mate. It is the wonderful memories of my dad that brings smiles and peace to my heart.... but oh how I wish he had lived to see his grandchildren grow and flourish... he would have been so proud.... and oh how I wish I could share one more laugh and hug... but then again, one would never be enough. He was an amazing man... I was blessed to call him my dad.
So Happy birthday dad... I wish you were here... but I am sure heaven is a better place to be.
