Dad, this will be our first Father's Day without you. I still miss you with all my being, although I know that you are in a much better place. It has been a rough four months without you. So many thing have happened that I wish you would of been here for.
I think most people stop celebrating this day after their father has died but I will mark this day. Each and every year. Like it or not, I can't pretend Father’s Day won’t bring a flood of memories to the surface.
For all the help you always were. For loving me unconditionally, for being an example I can hold high to live by (even as a daughter). For being the most awesome provider, father, friend and helper. For strong shoulders and being the one man in my life that loved me no matter what!
I love you. I will always miss you, until one day when we can reunite with our Heavenly Father. I pray every day that He takes good care of you, for me (I know He is).
Everyone misses you - and we have so much to look forward to seeing your name once again, being memorialized. I hope you can hear us saying "hi" to you everytime we stop by your grave. The grandkids really miss you, frankly we all really miss you.
Someone told us that our first Father's Day with out you will be the hardest. And here it is. And I'm heartbroken.
The memories will never leave me. The laughter, the joy, the good, and the bad. We pulled through it all, except when it was time for you to leave. But you haven't really left us, Dad. You will always be thought about every second, minute, week and month of every year. I love you very much. It's just not fair that your golden heart gave up.
All our love....
If you're reading this and you have your Father in your life...take every single moment to let him know what he means in your life. I praise God that I did. God Bless All Fathers.
The picture of my Dad and I was taken 17 days before my Dad died. And two days later I had seen him for the last time. And I will forever remember my last hug from him. Love you, Dad!
