One man touched so many peoples lives during his. He left a legacy of love with new generations and more to come.
I'm blessed to have had such a wonderful Dad and I thank God for each and every minute that we shared whether it was together or apart, our bond was so strong.
I thank you for your love, the warmness of your cuddles, the strength of your arms, the ever present hankie when I needed it most, the wisdom of your words, yes I know I hardly listened but you embedded them in my head and in my heart and they help me still.
I thank you for the rigid backbone you gave to my life and the legacy that keeps me strong today and every day that I must go on without you.
The most wonderful gift that you gave me is the knowledge that yes, I did make you proud.
You loved the tall, headstrong, opinionated daughter that exasperated you at times, the girl who went forward and did it her way. You lay the foundations for my life building the structure for a secure future carefully brick by brick and then bravely let me go, to forge ahead on my own through the open doorway into a future you had no control over, but one that you hoped in your heart you had prepared me for. You rejoiced with me when it went right and comiserated with me when it went tits up and smiled when I went and did it all over again. You took my hand when I needed it most and lent me your shoulder to lean against and your ears to listen.
You did your job well, you lived your life well, you loved us all well.
What more can a man ask than to love and be loved for who he is.
I love you Dad.
Happy Birthday Dad
