Sending bubbles your way Dad...


I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2 Tim. 4:7

Dad, today marks 11 years since you went to heaven. So many events have occurred since you went to see Jesus. I miss you and think of you often. I was reflecting on some life events that I wished you'd gotten to see: Me getting married, you meeting our sweet Luke, me lose 85 lbs., me start my own business and be successful at it, us go to church together and talk about spiritual things, Brooke's wedding, meeting your grand daughter Emery, us build a house, there are many more things that I wish you could have been a part of. I know that you are in a far better place. Selfishly, I just wish you hadn't gone away so soon. In memory of you this morning I explained to Luke that Grandpa needed to see some bubbles up there in heaven so he sent some your way. I hope you caught them and know how much we love you and miss you. There are a couple special friends of mine that have gone to heaven too. If you could please find Charles and Carol Ann tell them we love and miss them too. You will find great friends in them. They will both make you laugh, because they have great senses of humor. Thank you for what you contributed to 24 years of my life. I am convinced that so many of my talents that God blessed me with are the same one's that He gave you. For example, people tell me that I'm good at marketing my jewelry "creations"....You were fabulous at PR, so thanks for setting the standard high. Always know that you are missed and that you are loved very much down here. We will see you again one day.

I love you Dad,

Heather

P.S. Today is my nephew Beau's 3rd birthday. Happy birthday big guy. Can't wait to come to your party.

How cute is Luke's haircut!!! Heather, you wrote such a beautiful letter to your dad. I can't even imagine what that must feel like, but I cried just reading it. I am sure he prolly heard it since you always talk as you type!! So sad you won't be with me on my bday, but I understand. We can just do a make-up party and I can celebrate twice!! Love ya!

I cried when I read this. This really touched my heart. I never knew your father but I do remember you talking about him often when we worked together at, "that place." The Bubble thing is such a sweet way to share the memory of your father with Luke.
Love ya!
