It was 4 years ago today that my Dad passed away. Some days it feels like just yesterday we were hanging out and then other days it feels as if it has been a lifetime.
It's hard sometimes to explain the relationship we had, he was only 19 when I was born so as I grew up and became an adult the switch from parent to friend was flawless. It was quite common for Rory and I to go out on a Friday night with my parents and just hang out, we enjoyed a lot of the same things.
If I could have one wish it would be for my kids to know my Dad. Trevor was just 3 and Brendan only 4 months when he passed away. I talk about him all the time so they are coming to know the stories but it obviously is not the same.
My Mom put the following memorial in the paper today:
If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again Love you always
Miss you Dad!!
