I Miss You So Much Daddy: Happy Father's Day

The last Father's Day I was able to spend with my father was 7 years ago. I read 25 cards until I found the right one. I can remember it like it was yesterday. That card expressed to my dad how much of a positive impact he had on my life, and it told him that the positive attributes that I have are in part due to him being such and outstanding father and an outstanding role model. He read that card over, and over, and over again. My mother said that every time someone came over to the house, he would show them that card. As I think about that day I cry because I didn't have a clue that would be my last time spending Father's Day with him. I just didn't have a clue.

I know my father can't read this, but I am gonna say it anyway. Daddy Happy Father's Day! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss you. You were my rock, and I miss you more than I could ever express. I still hear your voice and the lessons you taught me in my head. I am going to attempt to stop crying now, but its hard. I am a daddy's girl and no matter what I say or do.. you are still gone. Daddy you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten. I keep you close to my heart. Always. I love you. Happy Father's Day.
