Happy 77th Birthday in heaven Dad! I am thinking of you today and wishing more than anything the same wish I always have and that is that you are here with all of us and I could say those words to you in person and all that I have kept in my heart all these years. Tomorrow is mom's 77th birthday and we will have a party and celebrate. How wonderful would it have been if you were here too Dad! You were her love and she still cries as we all do! I know that one day I WILL see you and maybe this all will make some kind of sense. I pass by the picture I have of you in uniform and say "hi Dad" every single day....you were so handsome and strong. I stare at your face and try to find myself. I believe that you hear me and you know how much I love you and I feel you with me. I miss you so very much and all that could have and should have been. God Bless you Dad, I love you always
