I had just turned 11 years of age one month before my Daddy lost his life in October 1971 at the young age of 38. That phone call will forever be etched in my mind with my Morher telling me: "Your Daddy went to be with Jesus." That day changed the rest of my life. We three girls knew we were truly loved by him. We were his world. He taught us to respect others, the difference in right and wrong, manners, and the list goes on. He treated everyone equal and taught us to do the same. A man truly loved and respected by so many. After 49 years I still have a missing part of my heart but I know that one day I will get to dance on the top of his feet, ride on his shoulders, and have him swing me round and round by my arms. I will get to see him face to face and hold him in my arms and say: " I LOVE YOU DADDY!"
I'm the middle daughter.
