“There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want
to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go.”

I’ve been thinking a lot about my dad lately because he’s missed so many milestones since cancer claimed him in 2007, particularly in the lives of his granddaughters. He would have been so proud; nothing was more important to him than his family. He was an exceptional husband, father and grandfather; loving and kind and patient. And he left behind a lifetime of heartwarming memories.

I’ve spent the past few days looking through old photos and reminiscing about days gone by. And I am once again reminded of just how lucky I was to have had him as a father. After he died, my mother said to me “Don’t ever forget your father. He was a very special man.” Indeed he was. And he’ll never be forgotten. His memory is etched in my very soul.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
