Things I know about my Daddy!


ScanThree years ago you left this Earthly world. While I, along with Mom and Michael miss you terribly, I know that you are in a much better place.

You were in so much pain and you were so tired. That wasn’t my Daddy. My dad danced at our neighborhood block parties. Although sometimes embarrassing, he did rock a good Chubby Checker twist dance. He walked laps with me around Saticoy School in No. Hollywood and taught me that men were ALWAYS supposed to walk on the outside of the sidewalk (PS. Eric always does!)

I know up there in Heaven wearing your blue button down shirt, you’re probably watching CNN, The Food Network, a football game or a Dodgers Baseball game. I bet the man upstairs even lets you enjoy a cold Budweiser too!

I know you see how happy I am now. I know you see how healthy mom and I both are and how I make sure she stays healthy, just like you did. Even though she probably thinks I am nagging her too! 😉

I know that although you didn’t get to meet Luna, you at least knew we were gonna name her after you and Eric. Which should have been a great sign from the very beginning that Eric’s middle name is James.

I know you see when Lily cries sometimes because she misses her Pap Pap but you also see how much she has grown in the last three years and what a good and kind-hearted girl she has become.

I also know you see when we eat a T-Bone steak in your honor or eat spicy foods and sausage. And by we, I mean mostly Eric who eats all of the same stuff as you. lol

I miss you dad. But I only miss you here on Earth. I have full confidence and excitement that someday we are gonna be together again in the most beautiful place in the world and I don’t mean that place you took us all the time as kids…Disneyland California. lol #HeavenIsForReal

Oh and thank you for giving me this awesome Polaroid selfie to use on my blog today, you were always ahead of the curve! 😉

I love you Daddy!

    I can so relate to this. My dad went to Heaven over 6 years ago. The last 7 of those years were hard. Dialysis several days a week. Wasn’t the dad I remembered. I had a hard time visiting with him because he was always in pain. Once he passed I had a hard time dealing with that. My mom was diagnosed with Parkinsons a few months before he passed. Of course it has progressed. I have a hard time visiting her on bad days as well, but she wants us to visit her. We try to visit often because she loves the company. It’s now time to move from having someone help her 2 days a week to her probably moving in with my sister so that she can have 24/7 care. There are 7 kids and we all help out as much as we can but I know that after being married 56 years when he passed, she misses my dad so much. They were truly soul mates. It’s hard seeing your loved ones suffer or struggle to do simple things. Cherish the memories. They will never fade, nor will the traditions. I know we have a lot of those. God Bless all those who have loved and lost. We will all be together one day and it’s better than Disneyland!
