Yesterday marked five years that God called dad to his heavily home. The pain and grief has gotten less with each passing year but I don't think it will ever fully go away. The memories of his sad and pain filled face have faded away replace with the memories of his smiling face, his determined and hardworking personality, and his tinkering nature. At times I feel like I'm pulled back in time when I'm doing something and a memory of dad starts feeling my mind, like the other morning I was outside right before dawn and I started reminiscing when dad, trying not to, would wake me up getting ready to go fishing it was like I was there smelling the coffee perking and watching him out the corner of my eye getting things together. I'm always reminded of him when something breaks or stops working, I can see him going down to the basement and working on it until it was fixed. I miss him so much. I miss him being here with me, I miss him coming home from work and fixing supper, I miss him playing the organ and singing gospel songs while mom and I finished getting ready for church. Holidays are starting to be fun and happy again however they feel uncompleted like a puzzle lacking the final piece. Today is Father’s day and if dad were here I would give him a present that was found with the help of mom and a card that I carefully picked out from all the others that reflected my feeling for him. I would give him a hug and kiss and tell him that I love him very-very much and appreciate all the things he has done for me and how happy and proud I am that he is my dad. All I can do today is send this up in my thoughts and prayers, and as far as a gift there are no gifts here on earth that I or mom would ever find greater than the one he has received from God, a mansion in the sky.
