How blessed you are to have had such a wonderful father. He may not be "there" to see his legacy, but I have a feeling he beaming down from the heavens and very proud.

One of the things I miss the most also is that my parents never knew my kids or my grandkids.
That is a really great picture of your dad.

He is here...didn't you just see all that he was doing. I know that there are hugs being passed around to this day from the loving hugs your very own dad gave you.

Your father sounds like he was a magnificent man. I hope your day is full of happy thoughts of your times together.

I don't think there is any greater compliment to a life than to still be loved and missed years after death. I don't think it will happen to me because I am not even missed now when I'm away. Well, my wife, Judy, will. But that's about it. I am happy for your dad.

Oh, what a legacy he left behind him with those he loved and who loved him.

Sending you a little hug and a prayer as you take each memory out and hold it in your heart for him.

He sounds like a wonderful man, and you are rightfully proud of him.
