Sweet Memories

It was my father's birthday the other day,
the 21st of September to be exact.

He was such a gentle giant sometimes, like when he would considerately answer my many letters to Santa or the Easter Bunny.

He passed away almost ten years ago but I still feel his presence around me, like when I came across this letter on Monday morning.




How appropriate.
Sweeter than finding a foil covered chocolate egg...and on his birthday too.

Make a memory today.

What a sweet rememberance! I love that letter. As you know, that is a treasure, and I'm sure your Father knew it even back then. My thoughts are with you.

How wonderful that you still have that letter. It choked me up to read it. Your father must have been a sweet, caring man.
