HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DADDY!
i cant believe that this is only the 2nd fathers day without you, it feels like so many more. i wish i would have know 2 years ago wouldhave been your last so i would not have taken those days for granted and i could have expressed to you how much i really appreciated you and all that you had done.
however, i cannot focus on what i should have done, but what i had done. you and i shared something that a lot of dads and daughters dont and that was a bond that can never be replaced. you showed me what the true meaning on life is and most of all, how to stay strong when times get tough. i cant thank you enough or explain to you in words how grateful i am to have had you as a role model and most of all, my hero.
today, more than any other day, i reflect back on all the times we share and i am smiling from ear to ear. you make me so proud to call you daddy, anyone can be a father but it takes someone very special to be a daddy.
thank you again for all the parenting lessons you have taught me, for they will come in handy very very shortly. aniela is going to know everything about her grandpa because your life was truly something unique.
keep me under your wing and protect me through the days to come, especially when they get tough. i love you so very much and i miss you terribly. you are and will always be my hero and superman in my eyes. RIP dad... until the day i see you again!
your little girl, your zon-in-law "j.g" and your soon to be grandaughter, aniela marie... we love you!
