Happy Birthday Dad

Born January 17th 1921 – left earth March 13th 1985

There isn’t a day that has gone by that you have left that I do not think of you, especially since the birth of Kyle and Hunter. I know in my heart that you would love my sons as you loved me, and that you would be their PaPa as you were Pappy to me.

I miss you dad and am glad you remain in my heart still today; on your birthday I would like to give you the gift of me being the man you raised me to be, the father and husband you meant me to be and the friend you inspire me to be.

Thank you dad, I miss you, I miss your hug and your 5 o-clock shawdow, I miss your rough hands and warm heart, I miss bowling a game or two with you, drinking a beer or two with you, 6am breakfast and watching you take a power nap at lunch. I miss everything about you, most of all I miss my hero, you, my father and friend.

Happy Birthday Pappy, my work here is not done, so I need you to be with me from time to time and I promise to make you proud if you’ll help me fix my mistakes and help me laugh at myself.

Please watch over and care for Kyle and Hunter, within them they hold the key to ‘Live – Love – and Laugh Often’
