Happy Birthday "Pay Pay"

My dad would have been 63 today. I knew I'd written a rather lengthy piece for him awhile back and I finally found it. I wrote the piece on dad's 60th birthday, March 14, 2006.

I just re-read it and especially dad's comments and it brings me much comfort.

Pay-pay I miss you so much it hurts.

  1. I know Dad wanted us to celebrate this day for him, I have no doubts.

  2. Dads are great, aren't they? Mine went in 2000 and I miss the crap out of him every day. Didn't have a cute nickname, but if my kids had been able to get to know him better, he would have. You've inspired me to maybe do a post about my dad when his birthday rolls around. May God bless you.

  3. Jess,
    I posted that last without having read the previous post. I'm sorry I didn't realize that this had just happened. I was thinking it had been longer. My prayers to you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Wow, your dad's comments made me cry. It was like a message across time. "I had it all".

    Sometimes the years don't seem long enough, but,wow, they were so full of happiness!
