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 wounds...it 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!
