For Daddy

My Daddy was a great man.  I wish you had known him.  There was no one that knew him that didn't like him.  No one.

I lost Daddy this week.  He left us on February 2 at 1:30 am.  He was 80 years old.
My favorite picture of
Daddy and Me

Thanksgiving 2012


He was not Dad or Pop or Father or any of those other names.  He was simply Daddy.  He didn't have much, but he was so very rich in family and love.

I love you Daddy and will always be your little girl.

  3. Oh, how sad. My heart goes out to you - it's such a hard time. It sounds like your memories and the love you shared will give you some comfort - I do hope so.

    My dad's sister died this week too. Extra-sad as my dad has Alzheimer's and can't retain the information. I think at least his memories of her will be of when she was young and not when she was ill.

    That's a gorgeous of you and your Daddy. Something to treasure.
