You are gone from here ~ not really.
I can't talk to you ~ not really.
I miss you ~ you are alive in my memories. You come to me in dreams. I feel you in my heart. There is a great distance between us. Not really..... The kids have been watching home movies. You are healthy and laughing your boisterous laugh.
You have gone on ahead of us ~ an answer to my prayers. 61 short years here on earth ~ eternity with Our Lord. One day we will be together again. No more distance.... Until then ~ you are here. In my heart. Alive in memories. Alive in the love you shared for us all. Not so much distance after all. I love you, Daddy.
