Thinking of you Dad on this Father's Day....all of us are and we all miss you deeply! There are no words to describe the emptiness all of us feel since you left this earth. Not a single day passes by that you are not in our thoughts and hearts. As your youngest daughter I feel I've had the most difficult time with the loss, even with Mom.... next month will be 7 yrs since her passing and still can't believe

Happy Thanksgiving Dad,

All of us are missing you so much, the holidays are not the same since you left us. Your passing was so hard on us because after Mom died you just kind of gave up. We know you suffered from your health issues and could see you slowly deteriorating even though you told us you were fine, when we knew you were not. I always look back and wish all of us could have gotten to you
