It was 30 years ago today that I lost my dad, and since then, I have graduated with a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling, where I help people every day. I think you’d be proud. I’ve also gotten married to the love of my life. He’s my protector and safe place. I think you’d like him. I love you and miss you every day.
