Every Day

I miss my dad every day. He was my rock he always knew what to say to get my *** in line when I was starting to stray off course. He wasn't around a lot because of work but he was always there when you needed him. I pretty much fell apart when I lost him and am still recovering to this day. I lived far away the last few years of his life so I didn't get to see him much. I remember coming back from a 6 month deployment and going to see him I couldn't believe what the cancer had done to him over that time period. I just lost it. He died about a month later and I have missed him ever since.

I still have his ashes on my fireplace mantle. It is nice to have him there I know he is looking out for me. There are plenty of times things could have gone real bad but they didn't. He died on Sept 10, 2005 on my sisters birthday.
