Today marks 4 years since my dad passed away. It's not something you ever really get over, but it's something you learn to adjust to. It makes me sad to think about all the thing he missed out on in my sister's and my life, but really I guess I'm more sad that my sister and I are missing out on having him around during the big moments of our lives.
It's a weird feeling today because it's been 4 years since he passed away, but this is the first year we have had a day since his passing because he died on leap day. I remember someone saying at his funeral; "It's just like your dad to pass away on Leap day, he wouldn't have wanted you to be sad every year." I remember that often because I know that my dad would want Timbra and I to be happy, and I know he would be proud of all that we have accomplished since his passing.
I've come to realize he'll always be my daddy even if he's not here any more.
