Dad. Today is a bittersweet day; for all of us. It was one year ago today that you left us. I remember every single detail, starting with the phone call, like it was it was yesterday.
I had a hummingbird stop by this week and he stayed for a few days. I'm pretty sure you sent him to let me know you are okay. That you are free now. You are walking and talking and feeling good again like you were before you got sick. That is all I can ask for, all I hope for.
Every time I see a piece of art or a beautiful flower or hear a funny story and I want to share it with you, dad, it hits home again that you are not here. I tell you about it anyway though because I know you are listening. You always listened.
I think of you every day, many times a day. I miss you terribly and love you dearly. Your daughter, Stacey
