Dear Daddy

"You are the rock that helped me stand up tall. You loved me, nurtured me, taught me, and guided me. Although you are no longer here in body, your eternal love keeps my head held high and passes on to each generation." ~Mama Hen
Dear Daddy,
It has been fourteen years since your passing and it still feels like it was not too long ago. You may not have been given a full life here on earth, however your impression, incredible love and guidance continues on in all who knew you. You were my rock! You were always a light I gravitated to. You made me feel like I could soar above everything and all and always feel confident no matter which way the chips would fall. You taught me to pick myself up when I fell to the ground. You always made me feel like no matter what, I was so unbelievably loved! It is this love that shone through you and passes through me onto my beautiful daughter. You are missed every day and every minute. There is a space within my heart that will always feel empty until the day we meet again. May you always know that I have the utmost respect for you and all that you did for me. I pray I may pass this along to your granddaughter. I love you Daddy!

  9. My thoughts go out to you this weekend Mama Hen. I know with my heart that your dad is watching over you with a great big smile above. Even though he's been gone for 14 years, his spirit still remains in you and in Little Chick. The more you describe him, the more he sounds like both of you--loving, compassionate, optimistic, happy! He certainly left a wonderful legacy, and now you're doing the same. Have a wonderful weekend. XOXO.
