My Dad

Would have been 66 today.

Wow. Seems so old yet so young all at the same time.

I have lived more than 12 years now without him being a part of my physical life. That is half as long as the number of years he was here with me.

So much has happened to me in 12 years that he was not here to share in. My pictures of these times are forever missing his presence.

I miss him every single day.

It is a bittersweet day. I can hardly imagine your daddy @ 66 as he will be forever "younger" in my mind's eye. But, my sweet girl, he has not missed one single event in your life. He has just viewed them from a different place. That man was so proud of his "girls". I just hate so much that he was not here on earth to share all the happenings so that WE COULD SEE HIM ENJOY THEM. He is sorely missed especially on special days. Love you.

I remember Paige mentioned your dad earlier this year when my dad passed. It has been 6 months for us and I feel like it has almost gotten worse even though everyone says it gets easier with time. I'm glad it sounds like you still think of him often and I believe they watch us with these kids every day! But it sure is hard them not seeing them and sharing these moments with us. I agree :(
