Well it is that time of year where I miss you the most. Everyone getting together for the holidays and your not here. There is so much you have missed. I remember our last LPD Christmas party and our last Christmas like it was yesterday and I miss those moments so much. I can't believe it will be 11 years next month. You were suppose to be here, I counted on that. And that is what reminds me not to take things for granted. Zach is all grown up and is (I was going to say a lot like you but--the apple doesn't fall far from the tree) a lot like me, when you use to tell me you worried because I needed to slow down. Oh how I miss that person I use to be. Your death slowed me down like hitting a brick wall and now I worry about Zach the same way. He definitely has your heart and resilience. Riley towers over me now. He doesn't know it yet but he has your fire. He just finished his first semester at UC. So proud. Now Syd, she is just beautiful. Every time I look at her I can't believe what a gorgeous young woman she has turned into. She will be starting at NKU at the beginning of the year and carries herself as proud as you did. And Macy, well she is part Cochran and part Evans and the jokes never stop. She like you can make me laugh until I'm in tears. The day you left I thought my life would grind to a complete stop into this place of just existing but it didn't. At first it was like trying to walk through thick mud up to your knees but now I see that the walk is over and my life kept going. It has actually been pretty amazing when I look at what all I have. I have a family I adore, loyal friends, my dogs and a home that I can call mine. The only thing missing is you. But just like the years before you will be with us all in spirit. I have my moments that I can still feel that hole in my heart and miss your voice but I am thankful that I had you as a father for as long as I did. I will love and miss you always. Merry Christmas dad.
