Hi Dad,

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday. Can't believe you would have been 66 today, crazy. I wish I could have had some more time with you. I wish I could have gotten to know you and built a relationship with you. I wish you could have met your 4 beautiful and amazing grandchildren. There is a piece of my heart missing in your absence, and another in Melissa's absence. I know you both are with us in every moment that passes but being able to hug you both would be wonderful. Anyways, now that I am sitting in a puddle of tears, I will end this by again wishing you the happiest of birthdays Dad. I love you.
