Our family was so young when cancer took you from us. You were only 37...I was the tender age of 12. So much has happened in the 41 years since we were last together...
...children (your grandchildren)
...me becoming a first-time "Nana" (your great-grandson!).
I cherish special memories of you that remain...a red and white ruffled dress embroidered with the phrase, "My heart belongs to Daddy"...my first diamond in a small heart pendant (Mom told me years later that you wanted my first diamond to be from you). I must tell you, I still get teary thinking about how much I miss you. There was so much we weren't able to share...yet I'm so thankful for the time we did have. How `bout I catch you up when we meet again?
And Daddy, just so you know...my heart still belongs to you!
Happy Father's Day, I love you!
