Losing my Daddy was one of the most difficult things I have gone through. As I am standing up here today, I realize how fortunate I was to have him as my Daddy. There are not words to express his influence in my life. It is through his example that I learned to be the father and husband that I am today. My Daddy was hardworking, strong, loving, and gentle. He loved his family and was deeply devoted to my mother and four siblings. However, he was no Saint by any means or stretch of the imagination. He truly believed that if you worked hard, treated people right, and with a little luck from God, you could have a good Life. Although my Dad may never have said it out loud I know that he was truly proud of his children and the way we all have grown up. When we would all get together on the holidays, he would sit in the big old soft recliner in our living room with his chest all puffed out. His Grandkids would scurry around the room, and everyone would want their chance to sit on Grandpa's lap. They would all scream when he would get up out of the chair, growl like a bear with his arms above his head and chase them around the room.He showed strength and love right up until his last days with us. I hope that one day, when I die, my children can look back, tell funny stories about me, and talk about how I loved them and their mother. Then, like my father, I will have led a complete life.Dearest Daddy may you forever rest in peace. I miss you all the time. God bless your soul.
