Happy Birthday Dad or as you would always say to me “many happy returns”! I trust you receive my birthday wishes up there in heaven. You would have been turning 88 today. This is the first of your birthday’s that you are not with us and I’ve gotta say – it’s tough!
Your 87th was not the best birthday was it but your 86th was a wonderful celebration out to lunch with all the family and every birthday before that was always a family celebration. It will always be a family occasion and we will always be thinking of you on your birthday (and every other day).
I am grateful for every single one of those 87 years that you were here on this earth and for the 53.5 of those years that I had you here with me as my lovely gentle Dad.
I hope you’re up there having a wonderful time with Nanny Fee, Uncle John, your Dad that I never got to meet and other relatives and friends that have passed. I’m not going to say much more because my heart is fragile and I’ll get too sad but I will say that I miss you, I love you, and I think of you every single day.
