Not a lot of words today.
Just some much deserved remembrance of a man who was lost way too soon.
I lost my Dad to cancer when I was nine. 23 years ago today.
It feels like it was so long ago and yet it seems like it only happened yesterday.
|My Daddy, on my birthday in 1986|
The years have helped to dull the pain but it will never completely go away.
Sad that those same years have also started to make me forget the little things about you.
The sound of your voice. The way you laughed.
The faces you would make as you were deep in thought.
I still cry when I think about you. But the tears don't fall like they used to.
I still have a hard time talking about you. But it is easier than it used to be.
I am thankful for the time that you were in my life.
I will take today and celebrate you.
You are so very missed, Daddy.
Love you always,
Your Baby Girl.
