My Dad

Today my dad would have been 75 years old.  I have celebrated his birthday in my heart all day.  I have very special memories of being his little girl. 

One of our special moments at Campbell Lake

I love you so much dad and you will always be in my heart.  I look forward to the day that we are together again!

Saying Goodbye...

The last week I spent with my dad was extra special to me.  He made me laugh, and I enjoyed every precious moment.  He was such an amazing example to me in so many ways.  He was a hard worker and true friend to those around him.  He had an unconditional love for me and my family.  He was so gentle and loving and made me feel like I was the most important person in the world to him.  He had so much patience and never complained throughout his illness.  He had a true love for my mom that I really appreciated.  I will always treasure the sweet moments as we would sit and talk or even when we sat in silence together because even then I felt his love.  

It was hard to say goodbye....

He left a wonderful legacy!
A huge family that loves him very much!
Until we meet again....

Family is a Little World Created by Love!

Time has quickly slipped away....but the times spent together as family have been so precious.  I want to share a few highlights from the last few months that have meant so much to me.
