Most Anniversaries are something to be celebrated, but today's anniversary is remembered as one of the saddest moments in my life. Ten years ago today I lost my Dad. Although it's true, that time heals doesn't remove them. I guess the best thing about time is that it's given me some true insight on my Dad.

I know that my Dad loved my mother.

I know that my dad loved me, Greg, Jimmy and Wendy.

I know that he thought that his Grandchildren could do no wrong.

I know that he loved playing music and working in the garden.

I know that he would say things out of anger and regret them as soon as they left his lips.

I know that he loved his parents, sisters nieces and nephew dearly.

I know that he loved baseball and the Atlanta Braves.

I know that he would have loved to watch his grandchildren grow up.

I know he would get the biggest kick out of Gabe.

I know Ellie would have him wrapped around his little finger.

I could go on and on with the things I know about my Dad, But the most important thing I Know is...He was ready (spiritually) to go.

I will always miss my Daddy, but after ten years I can now think about him and remember all the things about him that make me smile and not feel as sad.

I Love you Daddy!
