Today is the day "dedicated" for us to honor our fathers although in my mind each and every day is a day to be thankful for the fathers in our lives.
I was quite young when I lost my dad to a massive coronary - he died just 10 days after my 14th birthday and it is a loss that I still feel to this day. He was not there at the door to "greet" my first date, nor was he there to walk me down the aisle. He never had the opportunity to hold his first grandchild nor to play ball with him or to take him fishing.
I know that he is up above watching over us and I only hope that he is proud of the person that I have become!
I love you and miss you every single day Dad!
