October 27th is just a day in October for many, but for me and my family it is the day we said goodbye to a hero...our hero. It is hard to believe that 5 years ago my Dad took his last breath...Cancer...Esophagial Cancer... Cancer Sucks.
I miss him more today than I did yesterday, who says that kids don't need their parents as much once they are adults. I need my dad...I need his wisdom... his sense of humor... Iask my dad his opinion alot, he gives me signs. I see him...
I see him in my new grandson:
I see him in the kindness and sensitivity of my adult son:
I see him in the wisdom of my daughter:
I see him when I least expect it. I saw him the other day walking down the street and then realized it was my brother Keith. I see him everytime I am with my step mom. I see him when I run into a friend of his.
I would give so much to hug my dad again. To tell him "I love You". That is the last thing I ever said to him and the last thing he ever said to me.
We love you Buppie...
