OT: Dear Dad

Dear Dad,

It’s me, Jenn!  Today would have been your 60th birthday. 

Life has been good down here and we miss you a lot.  You’ve been gone almost eight years after a battle with cancer.  There have been so many sci-fi movies we didn’t get to see in the theater, so many hockey games we didn’t get to watch, and many family gatherings that you have been missed at. 

As we remember you on your birthday, we know you are no longer suffering.  Still, there’s a Dad-sized hole in my heart that no one else will ever be able to replace.

Here’s to you, Dad.  I love you.

  1. Very nice Jenn,

    I miss him everyday. And I think that his first little grandchild will be here this summer. But he is in a better place, in a body that is whole and healthy, and he is looking down on us. I think we need to get together and have a tuna casserole!

    Love you!

    Aunt Ellen


  2. Hi, I came here from the Rav blogging group. I'm sorry about your dad. This is a really nice letter to him. My dad has been through cancer and a major heart attack and I know how lucky we are to still have him.
