7 years

  I honestly can't believe it's been 7 years!
My dad was an amazing man! He taught me so much, He loved us no matter what!
To know that I get to live with him again someday is a great feeling!
I remember that he had great strength. He endured so many hardships.
He just kept smiling and saying "this too shall pass".
So many times I look back at pictures and remember something SO funny he did!
I remember at a family dinner I had my BFF over and she was reaching for the mashed potatoes and he yelled HEY (which meant what are you doing? Those are mine!)
She just dropped them and looked so frightened.

I think my mom has a really hard time with his death still. I know that she misses him so much! I know she tries to remind herself that this life is just a short time and that she will get to live with him again. He's waiting for her. He loves her! and He's proud of the women she is!

I feel that my dad waited until I got married before he past away because he wanted to make sure that I was taken care of before he left this earth.

I love him, I miss him!
