Dear Dad,

It has been one year since you were taken from us. This does not seem possible. I miss you greatly. We need a miracle, with all the sickness going on. Please watch over us, we need you more than ever.

Next week is Thanksgiving our first without you. I am thankful that you were my Dad and I am thankful for the memories. I am thankful you are not suffering anymore.

We are not the same without you and I guess we will never be.

You are thought of daily and still a year later, I go to call you and it takes a few minutes and then I realize you are gone for this plane.

God Bless you Dad and keep you in his arms, until we can be together again.

I love you and miss you.

I am glad you are with Mark now and that you are not suffering anymore.
