A Tribute To My Dad

My father passed away a few years ago... we knew the time would eventually come... it was a moment we both had planned for... a close relationship ours had truly become...

We spent the last few years... recognizing our love for one another... it was truly a special gift from God... to have this time to spend with each other...

We laughed at all the yelling... and all the punches that we threw... we cherished our fun times together... and winked at the secrets that only we knew...

De was never an Atticus Finch... or a perfect dad by any mean... but he was the best dad a guy like me could ever want... I was so proud of my Marine...

And now he’s off to Heaven... to join Madeleine and all the others... to watch over Granne and our family... to watch over the grandchildren, Stephanie and my brothers...

It’s time for us to let you go... but your memory will always remain... and I promise to look after Granne... until we see you once again...

I love you, De... thank you for being my Dad... ❤️
