Happy Birthday, Daddy

My dad would have been 65 today. 

He really was an amazing guy.  
He was brilliant and could make everyone laugh. 

But, he passed away from a rare form of cancer when he was only 32. 

He never got to see this:

My wedding

or this,
My brother's wedding

or these,
Six Grandkids

But I've always felt like he was there, watching over us. 
Just like he said he would 
when I was six.
Happy Birthday, daddy. 
I love you.

Stopping from SITS! He sounds like a special man who lives on in your heart.

Oh, thinking of you...

Of course he saw all of those things. He was standing quietly right there beside you.

I've been thinking about him so much lately. Probably from going through old pictures and our birthdays are a week apart. There are times when I would like to write about him and I think I could never convey the real picture of who he was. I miss him deeply. The last two weeks of his life that I was able to spend with him was a precious gift to me. I will always remember his strength and love of life.

He adored you Shell and would be so very proud of you now. I know he is with you all.

Happy Birthday to your Daddy in heaven. I am so sorry for your loss. That must have been very hard. He was a handsome man. I can tell he was very loved.
