Happy Birthday Dad!!

Today would have been my dad's 64th birthday. He passed away earlier this year from a very long battle with his health and it's feels as though it was yesterday. I took care of him in the last months of his life and even though it was very hard to watch him be so sick, I would do it all over again. The time that I had with him is priceless and I wouldn't trade it for anything! I just want to tell you that my dad was the best guy I know. He always made sure that we knew that he loved us and was proud to be our dad. He loved to tell stories and had the best sense of humor. He made us laugh everyday. He was also the best grandpa ever. My kids were so spoiled and never wanted for anything because PaPa made sure his babies always had what they wanted...even if I didn't agree! He was always supportive of me and my dreams and never discouraged me from trying anything new..even if he didn't understand why I needed to do this or that with my life! He was a great friend and mentor to my husband and it was so nice for  them to be so close. I wanted to share this because it has been hard on me and I haven't really been able to say or write anything until now, but I do know that he is happy now and there is no more pain or sickness for him and hopefully he and Mom are up there watching over us, probably laughing at our crazy life, but at the same time, being proud of all of us too! So here's to you Dad....Happy Birthday! We love you and we miss you terribly, but I know that you are still here in my heart and you always will be!


  1. Thinking of you today. It's amazing how difficult it is to take care of a loved one when they make their final journey, yet it is also the most rewarding thing you can do. Hugs to you...
