I love you and miss you.
Thank you for your love, even when we were apart.
Thank you for showing me what it’s like to be humble; to be curious about our world, faith, and life.
I feel your presence often and know that you are at peace. I only wish we could’ve spent one more day together to talk about life. I get choked up thinking of all we did and all we could’ve done. We missed out on years of connection, but, in the end, like a relationship with a close friend, when we were able to say I love you to each other and have closure it was as if time stood still. I am grateful for all that you were and all that you gave.
When we meet again, we can have that chocolate milkshake I promised you.
your son Shawn.
I’m filled with appreciation for my father after reading this. He is with me. And we have a good relationship, all things considered. Thank you for writing this.
Mark, I apologize for missing your original comment. I’m glad you liked the post and that you took the time to write a note of gratitude. Thank you!
