Today is my Dad's 88th birthday. Never in a million years did I ever think last year would be the last birthday we would celebrate with him. Nor did I realize how hard it was going to be to lose a parent. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him, think about him, thank God that I was graced with this man as my Dad!

I know he is flashing that huge grin of his. After all he is with the brother he lost in the Korean War, his parents that he was so very close to, his grandson Kevin, his first wife that died during child birth and his third wife that passed away shortly after they celebrated 30 years of marriage. I'm sure he's keeping the many family members and friends he re-connected with smiling, too!

Till we meet again! I love and miss you, dad!

    I know all too well how hard it is to lose a parent. Sadly both of mine are gone. I miss them terribly and I am so glad to have had them as parents. I tell people all the time to hold those you love dear and tell them you love them. If just might be the last time you get to do it.
