Father's Day 2013

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Another Father's Day goes by and I am remembering mine who was an awesome person. He loved me unconditionally and I miss him. He is now in heaven with my mom, and has been since October 27, 2004. Can't believe it has been 9 years. I thought I'd drop him a quick note,

Dear Dad,

I hope you are be proud of me. I stumbled, clawed and scratched along the way but I have made myself a person I am proud of. I have stopped most of my bad behaviors (you know what they were, never got away with anything) - still a bit too critical of myself - and am so much happier that I think I have ever been in my life.

Turned 50 this year, Dad. That means you would have been 81 in August. Was not meant to be I guess. I was holding you in my arms what you died, but I guess I don't have to tell you that.

One last thing before I sign off and go get some work done. I love you. And tell mom I love her too.

Your loving daughter,

    That was so beautiful. I know, I just know, he read this and read it in your heart and your mom is there too. I miss my dad. He passed away 4 years ago at age 91. Can't wait (but am not in a hurry LOL!!) to see him again.

    So well written. I lost my dad in a car accident on Christmas Day 2005 and I also turned 50 this year. Your letter expressed ALL of my emotions. So have a great Father's Day knowing you had a great father. I'm sure he's smiling down at you.
