Dearest dad: Oh how I miss you. The mornings and evenings are still so very hard. Constant lumps in my throat and it's hard to control my tears. I know you weren't ready but God must have been ready to have you. That's the only thing I keep telling myself...because I sure wasn't ready. I miss taking care of you and our talks. I miss you so much and the pain is awful. I needed you here still..but I will see you THERE someday. I love you dad. I just know Mom is so happy you are there with her now for her birthday weekend. I love you dad...so very, very much.

My sweet dad. I miss you more than any words could ever express. My days seem to run into each other and the pain is so unbearable--oh how I need your strength and drive just to get through each day. I love you so much...I truly cannot wait to be with both you and mom again. I love you.

I love you, Papa, and miss you more than words can say. Even though you had a full and wonderful life surrounded by people who adored you, you were taken from us way too soon.

Dearest daddy:
I miss you so deeply...I wrote before but I'm not sure it went through. I can't believe the amount of hurt I feel. My chest is tight all the time and I cry a lot...I loved you with every ounce of my being and I loved caring for you dad. You absolutely were the brightest spot in my life and many other's lives as well. I cherish the time you got to live with us. I miss you more than words can say. I hurt more than I ever thought possible. I miss you and mom. I know you are in each other's arms again and that is the only bit of comfort I carry right now.
I love you so much dad, and I really, really miss you. I want you to know your surgery was successful dad, just like we knew it would be. You are without the bag so at least I can have that tiny bit of happiness...but missing you is truly unbearable. I hurt all over, all the time. I miss and love you daddy.

My dearest daddy: I miss you so deeply. My chest hurts all the time and the tears just won't stop. The pain is ABSOLUTELY unbearable. I miss our talks in the kitchen and in your room. I miss caring for you and fixing meals for you and loving on you. I miss you sweet smile and your occasional calls during the work weeks. Tomorrow will be two weeks since taking you in for surgery. I want you to know RIGHT NOW dad that your surgery was a success and you are without the colostomy bag. It was the recovery stage that is questioned...I was there Friday, Saturday and Sunday with you. I only left your side for a few hours Sunday evening...then you were taken 7 hours later. I know you weren't ready daddy but God must have insisted that he have mom's soul mate and another angel right then and there. I wanted to roll you on into the casino the first weekend of February. If I can hold my head up without crying, I will attend in your honor. You are the very best daddy a girl could have ever wanted or deserved. I loved you with every ounce of my being and I hope you felt that and knew that. I miss you and mom...it feels so surreal still...and I feel the two of you so close to my heart...but my heart is broken in two and this healing, if it ever comes, is a long, long time away. I will find answers and closure one day...but the best closure will be seeing you and mom again.
I love you dad. XOXOXOXOXO
