Thinking of You

Today if my dad still here, he would have turned 74. Yep, today is my dad's birthday and I still miss him dearly. It's been ten years since he passed away and I still think of him. Especially when we have special event going on or when we have news to share.

At my brother's wedding, we all missed him and I remember thinking as I watched my brother and his bride, how much my dad would have enjoyed the event. How happy he'd be for my brother. For all of us to be together. And, I remember saying that if he's watching us from up there we do miss him.

I think, when it comes to your parents, siblings, family, or close friends, that no matter how long time has passed you would always miss their presence. Today... I just want to say... Dad, I am  thinking of you and hope you have a great birthday up there. Love you always.

I feel your emotions Vera and I know how you must be feeling having lost my Dad only a few years ago too! Ugh, the circle of life, sometimes it stinks! But your Dad is also looking towards you now sweet friend, and I am sure that his love for you is overflowing! Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute!

The fact that you miss him is such a tribute to the impact your father's life was here on Earth. My dad's birthday was a few days ago. I miss him too.

My dad would be 86 on May the 16th. In June it will be 5 years that I lost him and yes ... I still miss him.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful card you made to express the loss you're feeling.

My heart goes out to you Vera. My Dad would be 80 on May 24th. He'll have been gone 30 years come October. It is very hard. Hugs.
That's a very nice card that would be appropriate for a man or woman.
