I Miss You...

I wrote this Post several years ago and thought it would be appropriate to share it again today,
Father' s day......

"I dedicate this post to "my dad" whose 10th anniversary is this coming August. Even though i feel his spirit and "see" him in so many ways, places and faces.....not a day goes by that I don't miss his "physical presence" in my life. He was the calm at the center of the storm for me. A priest once said that the nicest words one could use to describe a person are: "He is kind." My father was kind. He was kind-hearted. He had a kind smile. He always had kind words for those who needed to hear them. He had a kind soul. He was  a man of few words but when he spoke them...they were abundant in meaning. Small in stature...he was larger than life in my eyes. He was my idol, my hero, my mentor, my friend.

Happy Father's Day Dad.
I miss you more than words can say...."

"Life is eternal,
and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing
save the limit of our sight."

Avec Amour,


  1. How moving, your dedication is to your sweet and kind Father. I truly know what you mean by seeing him in other's faces. I constantly see those I love in other's faces when I least expect it. It makes you stop and smile.

  13. As you have provided solace on Pinterest, I want to reciprocate with some words I have also found beautiful:
    "Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come."
    Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Laureate 1913
