16 years

Dear Daddy,

It's been 16 years since I lost you to cancer after just getting you back. It was hard not having a Daddy while I was growing up, but I feel so blessed that I was able to spend so much time with you before you passed away. Those two weeks were so important and mean more to me than you can imagine. You were bed ridden and in so much pain but you hung on! You waited until you knew that I was okay. That is a wonderful gift....

I love you and am comforted in the fact that you are watching over me and my family.

Hope your day brings lots of smiles from the memories you shared. Even though maybe just a few. He is watching over you.

That made me cry....
16 years. Damn.

It is going on 3 years for me. I cannot imagine hitting the 16 year mark.

I do hope the memories bring smiles today...

I'm so sorry you lost your dad; I really am. At the same time, I'm so glad you rekindled your relationship and created some lasting memories with him before he passed.

It's been 40 days for me. I hope I no longer flinch when the phone rings when it's 16 years.

I hope your day was good, gentle and peaceful.
