My Dad

My Dad has been gone for ten years now. He was sick for a long time before he went. I am very thankful that we got to sit and talk many times before he died. We did get to spend hours talking and remembering the past, good times and some that were not so good. Even when we were laughing about something that had happened...in the back of my mind i knew he was dying and there was nothing I could do about it. I had such mixed feelings about him. Wanting him to stay with us just a little longer and at the same time not wanting him to suffer anymore.
He was my teacher and mentor and the man i admired the most. My Dad was and is my hero.

Thank you. He was one of those people that never meet a stranger. I do miss him.
