Tough Times Make Tough People....I lost my dad about three years ago to skin cancer. He died at about 3:30 a.m Jan. 24th. I was about ten or eleven at the time. When you lose a parent you remember all kinds of things they have said to you. I will never forget what my dad said to me. I am the only girl out of two boys. My dad had always wanted a girl and one day I asked him why. "Because I can't wait to watch you grow up." Is what he said. It crushed me because after he died I had remembered that and thought that now he never will be able to watch me grow up. But he will watch me grow up. Just not down here on earth. He will always be watching me. My mom would always tell me "Whatever dosent kill you makes you stronger" And now I understand what that means. I miss my dad alot but that dosen't stop me from living my life. You have to move on but keep them in your memories. Remember all the good times. Because Tough Times Make Tough People.
