Today has been 20 years since my dad passed away. 20 years...has been that long?
I so badly wish he was here with us.
I wish I could of known him more.
I wish I knew all of his favorites: movie, song, book, drink, food. What he thought about what our world is going through. War, economy, unemployment. Give me advice on our yard, house, just plain old life. I wish our children could meet him.
I remember my dad- the fisherman, the worker, the authority,the tickler, story teller. Despite not knowing him on an adult level being only 8 when he passed away. I know him as my Dad, as a little girl should. Sitting on his lap, his beard and his love for his family.
We miss you deeply!!!
