Missin' My Dad

Today would have been my dad's 85th birthday and even though he's been gone many years I still can't help but want to call and wish him a happy birthday.

Dad - to you, as I kissed my babies this morning I couldn't help but wonder what your reaction would have been to them. Would Ryan crack you up with his offbeat sense of humor as he does me? That twinkle in his eye sure reminds me of the one in yours.

Even with the absence of a dna link - Emma shares your 'never meet a stranger' and 'pester one - pester all' approach to life. I can only imagine the fun the two of you would have had & the trouble you two could have caused.

And with little Rebecca, I can almost feel your smile from heaven when she pairs her tutu with her cowgirl boots that she is so proud of. She has a sixth sense with horses that I know you would have loved and appreciated too. Miss ya' and wish you were still with us.
