I have lost my daddy now. I was so happy to find him and have him in my life. His unconditional love had healed so many of my wounds. He gave me respect and acceptance in his gentle way. The time we had was so short--just a few years. And it hurts so to never have his touch, hear his voice or see his reassuring eyes. The love my daddy gave his granddaughter was infinite. He delighted in the sight of her. To have her share her hopes, dreams and goals with him was like children playing. My daddy also loved my mom. He gave her the caring she had never known before. My brother came home to my daddy again. That was beautiful. To see those two men together. One standing tall, young and with the future before him. The other to be sitting there stooped yet fulfilled with his life. Thank you bubba for being with daddy. A family has been joined together. One that never existed before. One that can grow and thrive. A family to carry on a name, a history....a life. I miss my daddy already. I will miss him always. But I am so happy to have had my daddy. God please bless and keep him always.
