Dear Daddy

Dear Daddy,

It is hard to believe that today marks 3 years since I was last able to hear your voice or see you. I remember that day so well and know that it is one I will never forget. You were very sick in the hospital, as you had been for quite some time.  I had told Amy and mom that I was not sure if I was going to come visit you that day because I was very tired and didn’t know if I felt up to making the over an hr. drive up. I debated back and forth all that morning about if I should make the trip or not. I ultimately decided to come see you and that is a decision I will be forever grateful for, because little did I know it would be the last time I would ever be able to.  I miss you more than I could ever explain and there will always be a void in my heart for so many things in my life that you will never physically be able to be part of. I am extremely thankful though as well. Thankful for the 33 years we were able to spend  together. Thankful for the years and years of memories that I will never forget. Thankful for all the things you taught Amy and I. Thankful that I was able to tell you that I loved you one last time. Thankful that I saved a voicemail message from you.  Most of all, I am thankful that I was able to have you for my dad.

So, until we meet again one day, I will do my best to make you proud.

I love you. XOXO
