Remembering my beloved dad

Today marks 20 years since my dad left us.
It’s comforting to know that
when it comes to the love and bond
between a father and his daughter,
there is no expiration date.
And his love and his spirit
will continue to live and linger on,
in my thoughts,
in my heart and
in my life.
Me and my dad on my first birthday!
“Say not in grief ‘he is no more ‘ but in thankfulness that he was.” – Hebrew Proverb

Remembering my dad

Sixteen years ago today, my dad passed away.   Recently, we said  goodbye to my beloved aunt and it’s comforting to know that my dad was reunited with his beloved sister in heaven.  
 
My message to my dad this anniversary is:
 
“Hi Dad, I can’t believe it’s been 16 years since you were gone. We are all imperfect.  While on earth you had much pain and struggles yet you were honest, kind and generous and that’s perfectly you. And I believe you were at peace with your past and is now resting in eternal peace.
I wish you could stay longer to meet your beautiful grandchildren. But I know you are watching over them from heaven. You’ll live in our hearts till we meet again. ~Love always, Pat (♡ ὅ ◡ ὅ )ʃ♡”

A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question,
“Boys and girls, what do we know about God?
A hand shot up in the air. “He is an artist!” said the kindergarten boy.
“Really? How do you know?” the teacher asked.
“You know – Our Father, who does art in Heaven… “

Puzzled about his first lesson on evolution, young Joey arrived home and said, “Mum is it really true that I’m a descendant of apes, monkeys and gorillas?”

“I don’t really know, darling.” she replied. “I never knew any of your father’s family.”

The lawyer’s son wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps, so he went to law school and graduated with honors. Then he went home to join his father’s firm.

At the end of his first day at work, he rushed into his father’s office and said, “Father, father! In one day I broke the Smith case that you’ve been working on for so long!”

His father yelled, “You idiot! We’ve been living on the funding of that case for ten years!”
