Today would have been your 69th birthday and I would have been at the house drinking coffee with you and laughing at your conversations. But you’re no longer here with us , no longer can I pick up the phone and say ” hey pops ” and you say ” heeey baby what’s going on”? No more words of wisdom no more movie watching no more singing out of key . No longer do I have the privilege of seeing you hugging you praying with you sharing my pain with you. This year has been so hard and so challenging, I can’t believe it’s been eight months since you passed away!
It was a struggle watching your health deteriorate right before us and then to get the call you had transition home to Glory on Good Friday….. the tears. For me it was an ah-ha moment because your death was symbolic to our Savior, like him you ask that the Lord take the cup from you , me and Sammi stood next to you on opposite sides as they prepared you in that room and you waited for us to leave before releasing your self into the arms of our Lord.
My God is so awesome and he knows what we need . You have given me so much love and wisdom that I will be full forever. Your mantle has now been passed on to me and I will do my very best to fulfill the legacy you have left behind.
I love you and miss you so very much daddy but you are in a better place , I pray that your memory burns into my heart and mind so that you are always with me . You are missed but never forgotten, your going to live on forever because I carry you with me .
Happy Heavenly Birthday daddy !!!
Love and Blessings
