Happy Father’s Day, dad.
On this day when people everywhere are celebrating their dads, I celebrate you.
I wonder what you’d look like today, at age 91. I can’t quite imagine you any other way than how I’ve always known you. You never seemed to change much, you never aged.
But you will always be 75, the age you were when you were stolen from us.
I know I’m lucky we had you that long. I know plenty of families where people have been stolen or injured much earlier than 75. I know plenty of people whose parents were taken when they were much younger than I was.
I know parents whose children were taken. That’s beyond anything I can even imagine.
So I know we were lucky. .
But I can’t help but wish you were here today.
Every day is Father’s Day, dad, because we all think about you every day.
But, I know you know that.

This brings a tear to my eye, as I, too, am missing my dad on this Father’s Day. It’s been nearly 13 years since cancer stole him from us. I like to think your dad and mine ran into each other in Heaven and are smiling down on us — hugs, Dawn.

Sweet. I’ve been trying to think what to post this year for Father’s Day. I’ve posted a selection of photos in various years. I think of things that I remember him doing (or making or working on, etc.) that I’m pretty sure no photos exist for except in my head.
And none of them answer any of the questions that I ask them.
Dads are hard to be without.
You write emotions well.

A lovely, lovely tribute to your father. How we miss dear ones who have passed. Today is the anniversary of my mother’s birthday. She would have been 85.
