I just found this website and I am moved by the reflections that I have just read. In case any of you return to this page, I want you to know that there are no words that I can use to express the gratitude that I feel that you would take the time and effort to honor my father. I pray that you are happy and at peace in your lives. I know that God holds you loveingly.

Now for my reflection:

It has been 40 years since I last saw you daddy. I was only 12 when you passed but I can still see you clearly in my mind. I hope that when you look in on me that you are proud of the woman I've become. I have tried not to forget what I learned from you. I am no longer angry at your passing, instead please know that I could not be any more proud and honored that you are my father. I love you always.
