To My Dad on His Birthday

Today is my father’s birthday. He would’ve been 70. He’s been gone for five years but it’s still so hard to believe that he’s not here.

All 7 in November 2012

This picture was taken last month during my trip to Indiana. It shows all of his grandchildren and all that he’s missed. Three of these children never met my dad and 2 are named for him. Another three of these children have had their Bat Mizvahs since he’s been gone and I know he would have loved being there to celebrate with them. Four of these kids have finished elementary school and moved on to Middle School and High School. My dad would have been proud to mark these graduations. There have also been football, lacrosse, and softball games he could’ve watched his grandchildren participate in.

He has missed it all and we miss him.

Part of me just has to believe that he still knows about all of this and still surrounds you with his presence.
