Happy Birthday


Today would have been my father's birthday. Sadly he died in 1995. Even after all of this time I still miss him so much! Timmy often tells me that he is sad because he never got to meet his grandfather. I think this weekend we will have a birthday "treat" in his memory.
I've told Timmy that the reason his grandfather died is because he got lung cancer from smoking. Timmy feels strongly about never smoking. I hope that this way of thinking stays with him forever!
My dad was only 61 when he died. That's just too young!
I dream about him all the time and talk to him in my dreams. It's rather comforting to know that he is still with me.
So, let me end by saying, "Happy Birthday, Dad!"
take care,
Dawn

You brought tears to my eyes. I'm so sorry you lost your dad at such a young age! I think it's wonderful that you're going to celebrate in his memory.
