Letter To Dad
Cari Graham


Dear Dad;

Years have passed since you moved on to that special place with God. I
stood helpless as he made his choice. I wanted so much to keep you by my side forever,
but that was not to be. I stood back and watched you go peacefully into the next life
where you are happy and safe. My little girl waited for you there. She guided you
through your journey as your mother guided her. I remained behind with my heart full
and heavy with the love and memories we have built together.

I will remember the knee I sat upon while growing up. The laugh that I could
always find in a crowd of people, beckons me to come looking for you. The harshness of
your voice when I had done wrong, and the gentleness with which you always held me
when I cried. Much like the gentle way you are holding me now to ease my pain of
losing you. I remember the hardships of growing up and being an unruly teenager. The
looks of pain you gave me when I didnít know any better. The pride in your eyes when I
accomplished my goals. I remember the joy you felt when you held my son for the first
time. The arguments and the agreements we have always shared. Our love for oysters
and sardines. All the help you have given me over the years that has always been there,
sometimes before I even knew I needed it. I remember the beagle you brought home for
me when I was a little girl. The adventures that beagle and you had! I smile at the
thought of it all. I could go on, but I donít need to. You have these memories too.

The path we have traveled together has been a winding one. Over a lot of bumps
along the way, you have helped to make me the woman I am today. I have the self
confidence and the ability to achieve all my goals in life. You took the time to teach and
show me the way.

I thank you for all you have given me and for all you have been. You have given
me life and in your death you have given me life again. You will rise in my heart and be
a driving force in my future. I will gather strength from you in all my days.

You will always be my dad. I love you and carry you with me forever.

Love always,

Your little girl.
