I never stop thinking about you, dad and I would give anything to just talk to you and tell you how deeply I have missed you every day of my life. I know what an amazing man you were, and my life is the emptier because you were not in it. What you would have meant to David and Douglas, to have their father in this life! The short but vivid memories I have of you when I was little are cherished and a part of who I am today. I see you in my children, and in my nephew, and the fact that you never got to see them grow up, or me for that matter, is just heartbreaking. I'm sorry I'm unable to reflect upon your absence in a different light, but I would be lying if I tried. Maybe when I'm (even) older? Love you forever.
