My Dads Birthday

Today would have been my dad’s 81st. birthday.

My dad either liked you or he didn’t there was no in-between.

Dad wanted a better life for us than he had as a kid. Our parents saw to it we had everything we wanted or needed and we were very grateful. As an adult, I learned to appreciate this much more.

Dad, I  miss you more each day, month, and year that you are gone but I will never forget you.

Happy Birthday, Dad, I love you and give mom a hug for me.

This is my 500th. post on this blog talk about good timing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Six Years

Dad it has been six years since you passed away. Not a day goes by that I do not think about you.

When I feed the birds or see the deer I remember how much you enjoyed wildlife. You loved your raccoons and they were very friendly.

A crisp 60 degree fall day was your favorite time of year. Pecan pie was your favorite pie. You loved chicken and dumplings, potato soup and beef stew.

Most days I get gentle reminders of you that make me laugh or cry.

Memories are there to soothe our souls and give us peace of mind.

I love you always and forever and thank you for the love & influence you had on my life it made me the strong person I am today.

The death of my mom

My mom passed away on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, and we buried her on Friday, November 22, 2019.

She will be missed by all who loved her and respected her.

Our family spent the evening at the homestead in Pearland, Texas that my sister and I grew up in. Our oldest son Joshua and his wife Cori ordered Olive Garden which was my mom’s favorite place to eat and we just sat around and talked. It was really nice to be around family & friends who felt the same way about her as I did.

When an elderly person loses a spouse their life is forever changed. My mom’s life pretty much started declining when my dad passed away five years ago in September.

This made her very vulnerable to some family members she trusted with her life.

My mom was emotionally, psychologically and financially abused and I will spend my lifetime getting justice for my mom who never deserved that treatment from anyone.

In the state of Texas, all wills have to be probated this takes about 45 days and NOONE is allowed to take anything jewelry, money or personal belongings until that happens. I had taken pictures of all my mom’s jewelry during Hurricane Harvey so it will all be accounted for down to every single ring and necklace.

Mom, I hope you find peace and happiness with my dad and grandparents.

I love you today, tomorrow, always and forever and until the end of time.

Five Years Ago

Today it has been 5 years since my dad passed away.

I took new flowers to the cemetery on Friday.

My dad and I were able to spend some time together while I was taking him back and forth to chemo and radiation. It was just the two of us and that was actually nice. We were able to talk about some things that were on his mind & he knew I would listen.

 I wish you were here so I could say “well dad you were right”!                                                          

You were such a smart man & you could always tell if someone’s intentions were sincere.

I am so glad I could be there for you when you needed me the most with kind words and a carrying heart.

Thank you for telling me you were grateful you could always count on me that meant a lot to me.

I love you and miss you every day. Thank you for being my dad and being a part of my life.
