Dear Dad

Hey Dad,

I can’t believe it has been 8 years.  Can you?  Do you even have time where you are?  Well, I miss you like hell!  Today is the day of the year, every year for the last 8 years I am reminded that you left.  Suddenly, tragically and all alone.  That breaks my heart.  But I know you wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.  You didn’t want to die of illness, sickness or disease.  You fought aging.  You hated it.  Your body breaking down, becoming weaker.  You didn’t want to burden your children. You wouldn’t have been a burden.

On the bright side.  Your daughters are talking again.  We have a relationship.  Not a close as we were but we talk and email and we are in each others’ lives.  Her children are beautiful.  She is an amazing photographer.  One of her pictures is going to be displayed!  I need to see her more.  It’s important.  She is even going to take pictures for me and my business partner.  How cool is that?  Oh, I didn’t mention, her and her family are in Colorado now.  But I have a feeling you knew that.

Your eldest grandchild is amazing.  She is 21 now!  She trying to find her voice and herself.  I know when she does she will move mountains.  But we’ve always know that about her.

Well, I just wanted to say hi and i miss you terribly.

love you!
