Topic: One year ago today, I said "Goodbye Daddy"
One year ago, this morning, my one and only Daddy lost his brave battle with CC. My Daddy is the strongest, most gentle man I have ever met. This past year was filled with many firsts.....first Father's Day, first Easter, first Gator football game......the list goes on and on. There is not a day that goes by that our family does not say, "Daddy would....." "Papa said...."
Some days are filled with sad tears, just getting through another day.....other days are filled with happy tears, sweet memories of our Daddy/Papa. You never know when they are going to hit....sometimes when I am cooking supper, driving down the road, looking out the kitchen window, watching the turkeys or just looking into the faces of my 3 nieces, who were their Papa's heartbeat!
To those of you who have lost a loved one to CC - my heart goes out to you today - you know exactly how I am feeling. To those of you have have a loved one battling CC, be strong and cherish each and every moment.
We love and miss you Daddy/Papa - rest in peace until we meet again and keep watching over us daily.....we feel you with us.
Smiles through tears,
Your loving daughter
