mY DAD WAS THE GREATEST MAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN. hE ALWAYS KNEW WHAT TO SAY TO MAKE ME LAUGH WHEN I WAS FEELING DOWN. wATCHING HIM SLOWLY SLIP AWAY FROM ME WAS THE HARDEST THINGS I EVER HAD TO DO. i COULDNT MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER LIKE HE ALWAYS DID FOR ME. i MISS HIM SO MUCH. i HAVE THE FACT THAT I AM STARTING TO FORGET SOME OF THE THINGS THAT MADE HIM, HIM. sOMETIMES I FIND MYSELF WANTING TO TALK TO HIM, THEN I REMEMBER THAT HE IS GONE AND I LOSE HIM ALL OVER AGAIN. oNE THING THAT GIVES ME COMFORT IS KNOWING THAT HE WAITED FOR ME BEFORE HE LEFT. bUT THERE IS ALWAYS DOUBT IN MY HEART. i THINK TO MYSELF THAT MAYBE IF I HAD WALKED INTO THE ROOM A FEW MINUTES SOONER I COULD HAVE SAVED HIM. bUT COULD I? i LOVE YOU dAD

Today makes six years that my dad has been gone.  I have so many mixed emotions about this day. I keep trying to remember all the good things but then pops up some other stuff that i just cant get past. I know that i shouldnt hold on to this anger or resentment but its so hard to let go. I miss him. Time will never change that. It was at around now (4:22) that he slipped away. I love you dad.

Missing Him

My life is so much different since he has been gone. I miss him. The sound of his laughter. His voice. Everything. I remember when he would come and get me for  the summer. I loved the trip up to vt. I got to spend time with him. We wouldnt have to talk just to be in the same place. Sometimes i forget that he is gone and just want to talk with him. I still cant get used to the fact that he is gone. This year will make six years. Some days it feels like yesterday. He was the man i have ever known, my hero.
