15 Years Ago Today...

I know this man,
Who is near to my heart.
One day 15 vears ago,
It was torn all apart.
This man taught me everything
That I needed to know
But I never really listened,
Until he had to go.
He gave me love
And touched my life
He always taught me
wrong from right.
The day he left
I wasn't that strong
He has missed so many things
and has been gone so long.
But I will see him again
This I know
The day will come
When its time for me to go
So, I'll hold him dear
And close to my heart
Cause the day we meet
I know we'll never ever be torn apart
I miss you Dad and Love You!!

Dear Dani,
What a beautiful poem and what great pics. I'd never seen either of those photos. Really love the one on top ("Real men wear pink!"), and what a head of hair and beard in the other one! So great to look at those; they made me smile. I like to think of him as seeing all the amazing things you create, and what a great wife and mom you are. That's the best tribute we can give someone, to live our lives the way they'd want us to.

Thanks Aunt Diane...the top photo was I think from a graduation party in 1987 and the bottom photo is actually a photo with Uncle Jim in it. It was from 1978 Christmas. I'll send you the photo...

I appreciate the nice words. It is still amazing to me that he is gone. Seems just like yesterday he was walking around the house finding projects to do. I miss him everyday!!
