Dad, today is your 60th anniversary. How can that be possible? Another question, how can I love someone so much who I never met? I know the answer to that one...being married to your son, Jim, for 50 years. Not a day goes by that you are not in our thoughts along with a wonder of what might have been if we had much more time with you. Wish our children could have sat in your lap and smothered you with kisses. So many wishes.... On this day, know that you are always remembered, always loved. If I should get to heaven one day, please meet me at the gates and hug me. I dream of that! xxxs
