Happy Birthday Daddy!!

  Today is my dad's birthday. He would of been 61 if he was still here with us. I never stop missing him everyday. I wish he was still here so I could celebrate his birthday with him. The last birthday he was here for I remember making his birthday cake for him. He knew how much I loved to bake cakes so we always had cake mix in our house. That's just a random fact about us that makes me smile to think about. We had such a good night on his birthday. He just seemed so healthy then but I think he was sick then too. I always think of what it would be like if he was here right now. I wish he would have been able to meet my babies. He would have loved them so much just like he loved all his grandchildren. Today he and my mom have 9 grandchildren. He would be so proud. I just wish I would have been able to see him holding Aleah and Sophie. People always say it gets better with time. That really used to make me mad. I don't think it ever gets better. It gets acceptable. I will never stop missing my dad but I have finally accepted that this is how it's going to be. He's in a better place where he is healthy and smiling watching down on all of us. I know he sees all of us growing up. I know he is proud. I love you Dad! War Eagle!


  1. Jarah- I love you....he is so proud of you!I wish that I could have met him! He must have been one awesome guy to have a daughter like you!

  2. Aww..Happy birthday Jerry. He watches over all his grandbabies and I know he couldn't be any prouder of you and the girls. I remember the first time I met your dad... It was when Me, Jeremiah, and Adam all lived together. Your dad came over and took me in the dining room to warn me against the guys. He told me I was too sweet to be hanging around with those crazy boys. He was only kidding and had everyone laughing. Lots of good memories. I know it will never get better but I pray it gets easier and I know those girls will grow up living with all the wonderful memories we all share of Jerry. Hugs and Kisses!

  3. Melanie- Thank you! I love you too! My dad would have loved you and you would have loved him. I wish you could have met him. He was such awesome person.

    Ashley- That sounds just like something he would do. He always made people laugh. I am glad you had the chance to meet him. I look forward to telling the girls stories about their papa!

    Thank you both for your sweet comments!!
