30 Days of Love - Day 4: Dad

Day 4 is dedicated to my Dad.

Dad didn't finish high school and could not read very well BUT he was a very hard working man. He went to work everyday...getting up before the sun ever thought about shining; and sometimes not getting home until after the sun set.  Dad taught me that no matter what job you are working you give it a 110% effort.


Dad passed away April 19, 1992 after a long, hard battle with cancer.  His final words to me were "I am sorry.  I love you.  Take care of your brother."  The "I am sorry" meant more than I can ever put into words.  I accepted his words, told him I loved him and then told him it was time to go.  When he took his last breath, he passed peacefully and I too felt at peace.

I miss you Dad.

  1. Beautifully written. I felt the love between you as I read your words. He would be proud of the special woman you've become. What a touching tribute. Thank you for sharing him with us.
