Another Year Gone

Another sappy family post. Bear with me, and sooner or later, I'll find something fun to post about. *grin* I'm writing this today, because I don't want to start the day tomorrow in sorrow. There's no room for that when LMW is here.

Mr. BLines, LMW and me.

 Tomorrow would have been my father's 77th birthday.

I can't believe he's been gone six years.

Last year, I paid tribute to my Dad on his birthday, August 24th.  I won't repeat it all, and you can read it again if you like. But I will say that he was one of the most generous, giving, helpful men I've ever known. All I had to do, was mention I needed something, and he would immediately go out to his "shop" and begin creating it. 
I believe I've mentioned it before, but if you missed it, I created a memorial page for him on my family genealogy website.

I still cry for him. Do daughters ever stop missing their Daddy?


He is celebrating with the saints in Heaven. Happy birthday Daddy. I love you.

On a lighter note, I have finished a NICU quilt and you can see it on The Seam Rippers.

Like your family picture!

My Dad died 16 years ago last month. Yes I still cry... and I think it is OK to cry for years... we miss them...

Belinda, I have never stopped missing my daddy or my mother. Daddy has been gone for 39 years now! Many things still remind me of him, but now the sorrow has turned to sweet memories, Praise the Lord!
