~~~~ CANCER SUCKS ~~~~

"Daddy's Hands" - Holly.Dunn

I remember Daddy's hands, folded silently in prayer and reaching out to hold me, when I had a nightmare.You could read quite a story, in the callouses and lines, years of work and worry had left their mark behind.
I remember Daddy's hands, how they held my Mama tight and patted my back, for something done right. There are things that I've forgotten, that I loved about the man but I'll always remember the love in Daddy's hands.
Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin', Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong, Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand, there was always love in Daddy's hands.
I remember Daddy's hands, working 'til they bled- sacrificed unselfishly, just to keep us all fed. If I could do things over, I'd live my life again and never take for granted the love in Daddy's hands.
Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin', Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong, Daddy's hands weren't always gentle But I've come to understand, there was always love in Daddy's hands.

This is for my Dad. He died of cancer after fighting a long & hard battle.Dad was what one would call a "Jack of all trades" . But 1st & foremost-he was Dad to 7 children. He was the fire chief of the little town we all grew up in & even when he was to sick to go to the meetings , he was "voted" in as chief again (Thank's guys)& pretty near all of his firefighters showed up @ his funeral,which was standing room only. My Dad joined the Air Force when he was 18 years old & served in Okinawa for 2 years. R.I.P.Daddy,I love & miss you . *Now & Forever*
