It's hard to believe it has only been 9 days now since you have been gone "gone from my sight, that is all". I feel like I just lost you yesterday. I have the 'missing you' part down but as far as 'letting you go', well that is going to take some time. You are a hard one to let go of pa!
You were as handsome leaving this earth as you were all of your days. You even had a little smile on your face. You told one of your sons that you were ready to go to the 'happy hunting grounds', ha, sounds just like something you would say. I know you have found mom there and are together forever, and that makes me happy. I will be looking for you both there some day.
Pastor Brad did a wonderful job for your service, and my buttons were popping with the pride I felt for you then and as always as he covered your life story.
So, thank you dad for giving me such a wonderful, happy, secure and stable life. Your love and wisdom was always there for me. Thank you for always taking me shoe-shopping as a little girl, and for bringing me Ludens cherry cough drops when I was sick. I love you Big Daddy!!
