Happy Birthday Dad

It is my Dad's birthday. He passed away 14 years ago and he is never very far away from my thoughts, especially today. I treasure the memories I have of him. He had an amazing twinkle in the eyes, smiled and laughed readily, and had a great sense of humor. The day I told him that Gregg and I were going to get married he gave me his blessing, saying that he knew Gregg was going to be a wonderful husband and that I would have a great life with him. He was right. Dad was so good about weighing people up from the very first time he met them, and maybe that's why he made such a great police officer. My Dad was one of the best in my eyes and always will be. So, Happy Birthday Dad, I love you!

Our parents are very important to our life and dad a bit more for girls. He's always our hero, a man's model. When i think that one day he won't be here..... I can't think of that. The memories of him will be my treasure.

A lovely post Denise and a great tribute to your Dad.

My Dad died about 26 years ago and I think of him often. But there are certain "special" days when he stays in my thoughts.

I am so happy for the days and times that I shared with your Dad. And I regret that he left us before we had the times together that we talked about so many times. Love Gully
