I Miss My Dad
I broke down in tears on Christmas Eve morning, thinking of Christmas last year when we came to see you at the nursing home, and I sat next to you and sang Christmas carols. I was crying and you held my hand. I know that even in your limited capacity that you were trying to comfort me.
I never realized how much I would miss you Daddy. I had a picture of you with Jayne and Peg and Marie re-produced to give to the girls for Xmas. You were 33 years old in that picture Dad, and you looked so young. It was before I was born. I think I was trying to give the girls a good memory of you. It seemed to me that I had the best of you. Anyway, I found a picture of you standing by the river in front of our old house. That is the Dad I remember. I found I nice frame for it and I will try to get that re-produced as well so I can send that off too.
I don't know why I am writing letters like this. I am trying to get through it I guess. I know you know what is in my heart, but it sure does hurt still.
I can't wait until Spring so I can plant flowers by your grave and feel like I am taking care of you. I was with all the cousins on Christmas Eve, did you and Aunt Marvis and Grandpa and Grandma see us together? Uncle Don is still cranky, but I can handle him the best, or so the boys say.
I love you Daddy, and miss you!
