7 years ago today...

my dad passed away. In a way, I can't believe that it has already been 7 years, but in others it seems like it has been forever since hearing his voice or seeing him. We all still miss him terribly. We are so grateful for the knowledge of seeing him again. I love the memories that I have of him. My heart aches that my children will never know him in this life. But, we are so grateful to know that we will be with him again and for eternity.
I miss the talks that we would have. I miss hearing his voice. I miss his willingness to help in any way, shape or form. I miss the way that he would treat DH. I miss the gentleness of his spirit and how he was a peace maker to everyone.
I love him and I know that I will be with him again. Time does heal some of the pain, but not all. We love you Dad and miss you everyday.

We miss him too! Thank you for the nice tribute and reminding me of Uncle Don's goodness. I'm so glad he had such a wonderful wife and kids. It will be so neat to be reunited with him!
We really missed your family at the reunion. It was so fun to see everyone. I think next year it is scheduled for July 17th & 18th. Hopefully we'll all be able to come.
I love keeping in touch. Hope all is well!
Love, Marie
