    I Miss My Dad...

    I'm 40 years old, and I just lost my dad. I miss him. My son lost his dad when he was 11, and it is so hard as an adult to lose a parent. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it must have been for him at such a young age!

    Daddy, I Miss You...

    You were the only man who I actually felt proud of showing off. You were the only one who actually had patience for my sister and I. You were the only one who loved us and actually meant it. You were the only one who cried for us. Daddy, I know you aren't my real father. You...
