Dear Dad, stumbled across this page and read all of the other reflections. Decided to try it for myself. I read all of the ones my mom put on here and it made me cry. Reading all the these reflections reminds me what I lost and what I could have had if I didn’t lose you. But I did lose you. I lost out on knowing you and being able to be surrounded by your love. I lost being to have a full family with you in it. I miss you and I wish you were here. I struggle with your death and growing up without my dad 13 years later. Even if I don’t remember everything it still hurts. The possibility of what it is still lurking around each corner that I turn. I started high school this year and I wish you could’ve have been here to see me become the person i am today. To see the progress I’ve made despite the struggle and the feeling of loss for you, even if I can’t remember anything anymore. I want you to know that I am always thinking of you and i will always love you, no matter how many years go by.
Until we meet again
