For my Dad’s 50th birthday this past December, my mom had all his closest family and friends send letters of memories they had with him – she then wrapped them all up for him to open on his birthday. Looking back, I am so thankful my mom did this because I got to tell my Dad how much he truly meant to me only weeks before we’d lose him forever. I never got to say goodbye, but he knew how much love I had for him and that I couldn’t have asked for a better Dad.

I’m missing him more than ever this morning, wishing I had one more chance to tell him how perfect he was in my eyes, but I’m finding comfort in this letter.

Dad LetterI love you, Dad. I can’t wait until the day we meet again and I’m able to give you the hug I wish I could give you today.

Amy, xo.
