💕Dad’s 21st Anniversary💫

Found a photo of dad taken in 1961
and coincidentally today is
61 years since it was taken.
Hello Dad,
Today is the 21st anniversary
of your passing and
I want to remember
this day with gladness.
About 10 years ago,
I realized I have not
allowed myself to really
feel the pain of losing you.
And through writing
on this blog during your
anniversary and birthday,
I had finally found healing
and peace in my heart.
The kind of wealth you possess
was priceless and admirable.
you were amiable,
you were big hearted,
you were compassionate,
you were a true friend,
you loved animals and nature,
you read a lot and read till
your very last day and
you had a wonderful
sense of humour.
No, you were not perfect.
You had flaws, don’t we all?
We’re all imperfect and
that’s what makes us human.
Last year was a tough year for us,
as we had to bid farewell
to Aunt SC and Uncle W.
And I could imagine you
standing there at heaven’s gate
waiting to greet them
with open arms.
I know how fond you were
of your sister, SC and
that you were close to her
when you were both younger.
But then, we sometimes
drift apart through the years
due to many reasons.
I remember mom once said
that you had wanted to write
a book about your life.
I wish you had done so.
The truth and the many things
left unsaid would have helped
fit all the missing pieces
of the puzzle together.
But that’s okay, Dad.
I’m slowly gathering
all the missing pieces and
getting a clearer view
of the whole picture.
I miss you, dad.
I miss your smile and
I miss your warm humour.
Have a blessed day in heaven, Dad!
Always in my heart,
❤️Pat
