He would have been 73 today...

I just couldn't let the day go by without saying "happy birthday" to my dad. That may seem crazy, since he died six years ago. Wow. I can't believe it has been that long. I am still adjusting to life without him and my mom. Anyway, it just didn't feel right to keep silent. That seems too much like forgetting and I will never forget.

Can you just imagine him up there right now, smiling that quiet smile at you? I can. Happy birthday, grampa!

Happy Birthday to your dad as well. I love the quote. Do something today that would make him smile!

My dad died when I was nine and I still think about him and wish him a happy birthday in Heaven!

Thanks for visiting my blog - I lurk on yours frequently because I like your writing style.

What a beautiful picture to have! I'm sure he's watching and smiling on your family. And don't ever forget his birthday or him!
