Hi Dad. Happy Father’s Day.
Yes, I miss you. It’s been over two years since you passed away. I hope you know that I was planning on stopping to visit only a few weeks before you died, and I regret missing the opportunity to see you.
I want to thank you for the opportunities that you gave me, my sister, and step-brother, and hope that we’ve made you proud.
I want to let you know that I think of you often, especially when I go to the garage and use the tools that I saved from your shop: tools that you used many times and have worn a patina on.. And when I walk by your old work desk, and china cabinet full of your old shooting trophies.
Yes, I miss you. And hope that you are happy and at peace.
Happy Father’s Day, one and all.
And OldNFO, thanks again for letting me post about Dad on your blog. I’ve grown up and got one of my own now, but thanks anyway…
