Happy Birthday Dad. Thank you for all the Memories, Love, and fun we shared when we started to have our dates every Wednesday of every week until you were called home.
I can feel your presence so very many times when I see or when I am around different places that you and I shared on our special days. I felt blessed to know that your faith in me and trust never wavered on the last day that I saw you before you passed on. The thought of all the fishing you have been doing in heaven - makes me laugh - because when we went fishing and you caught five of the most beautiful salmon I had ever seen - the look on your face said all the words a daughter needed to hear.
