To My Dad In Heaven

My father passed away on December 21, 2000 at 9pm.
I was thankful to God that he answered my prayer  to send an angel to come and get my father,
who was very ill in the hospital. He was a good man and did not deserve to suffer anymore than he already had.
Although I miss him tremendously, and think of him every day, I know he is in a better place,
one that God has prepared for him.
I have many wonderful memories to hold on to, since I can no longer hug him.
It's been a very difficult year as a "daddy's girl" to lose the one man I've always depended on,
who would always be there when I needed him. That's what Dad's are, that's what they do.
I will keep on doing, what I have always tried to do, and that is make him proud of me.
I Love You Dad, Merry Christmas.

My Dad had a great sense of humor, and one of his favorites was bugging me:
Every time I would wash my car, he loved to mow past it and throw grass clippings from the tractor
all over the side of my clean car! (as well as my flower beds too)
Then he would ride away on his tractor snickering all the way!
