Happy Birthday, Dad
Had he not passed away 6 years ago, today would have been Dad’s 81st birthday. Last night, as I was falling asleep, my last thought was tomorrow is Dad’s birthday. When I awakened this morning my first thought was today is Dad’s birthday. I miss you every day, Dad, but I miss you today so much more. Happy birthday, Dad! I love you!
This photograph was taken in June 2003 at a family reunion. As Bob and I were getting ready to leave, I asked him to take a picture of my family. I am so thankful that I have this photograph. This is the last photograph I have of Dad, Mom, my brother, Jim, and I. Dad passed away on February 12, 2004.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how that feels. You are in my prayers today dear friend! Elena
Bob took a lovely photo Linda. Thank God we have our memories and treasured photos. So sorry for your loss.
Sometimes that kind of loss can be a reminder of the love of the parent lost. My prayers are with you.
You are fortunate to have enjoyed your dad for such a long time, Linda! I lost mine to cancer when i was only 18 years old. I miss him terribly! 🙂
