I Miss You Dad

I've never been very good expressing how I feel, especially in the written word. English was always the most difficult subject I took in school.

On Oct. 10th my dad left us. We may not have always seen eye to eye on things. We had many clashes over the years as children do with their parents. In the end none of that matters. I think we both figured that out about 15 years ago. I know he is at peace now. The last years were not easy for him as his health declined but it's still so difficult.

This picture was taken about 34 years ago. The little one is my oldest daughter. Daddy always smiled when he was with his family and he had a large family. There were 6 of us and he lived to see more grandchildren then I can keep track of and then there were the great grandchildren. He left a wonderful legacy.

I know dad is up there with mom and he's singing with the angels. Singing was such an important part of his life. As a Cantor he sang with so much feeling. You felt it in every word he said. Now I'm thankful for the videos and mp3s so I will still be able to listen to his voice.

Dad, I miss you more than words can say.
