Awesome, Gavin! I just stole it!!!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Daddies  in our CC Family.

I would like to share with you a note my Granddaughter  to her Papa (Teddy) about 3 months after he passed. She called me one day from NAU when she was 19, about 3 months after Teddy passed and said I miss Papa so much what can I do and I told her to write him a note. She also put this note in the Western Wall when she went to Israel.

Dear Papa,
I really love you! You are the best man I know in my life. No matter what happens or how the day treats me, I really love you. You have been such a role model in my life I cannot possibly explain how much I look up to you. I hang on to every word when you tell a story, I've never known a wiser human being. Everything you tell me I take to heart and I cherish our days together. I have only known you as the most caring Papa any Granddaughter could ask for. I wish there were many more kind hearted people like you.
You helped to raise 4 added Grandchildren in your ways and we are truly better people for it.
I can never tell you enough how much I appreciate you and how much I adore you. So many people have been touched by your heart and mind I feel it will help me knowing that a little part of you is in everyone. I miss you so much........Love Lexy

Teddy ~In our hearts forever~ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING

Gavin-

Sorry I'm a day late. Yesterday I was very blessed to be able to spend the day with my father.  However, during the day my thoughts often went to how appreciative I'm sure your father was to have you as a son.  I am so sorry you lost him much too early in life. 

Love and hugs,

Catherine
