9 Years and Counting

Happy 9th Wedding Anniversary Honey!

To my darling wonderful husband who has more than been there for me. Thank you for loving my Dad like your own and for being such a wonderful "son-in-law". For being beside me and my Dad and Mom over the past year. For all the trips to Kingston, for stepping up to the plate, for all the visits to the DR's and lunches at MacDonald's with my Dad. 

For the numerous hours at the hospital as my father cancer took over, and for being with us in those last moments when we needed your strength. My Dad truly loved you like a son, and knew that he could count on you took look after me.

I love you for the man you are today, loving, funny, and someone who I can count on in my darkest moments and when the sky opens up and the sun shines.

You are truly one-of-a-kind. I love you more each day we are together. 

Dad walking me down the isle.

Thinking you today
Today would have been my parents 54th Wedding Anniversary. With the passing of my father two weeks ago it is still so tender, thinking of him not with us breaks my heart. But I can't imagine how it is for my Mom. For 53 years she has had Dad at her side, with her on this special occasion. Mom will be coming to dinner to our house today, so she isn't alone and we will celebrate even though Dad is not with us in person he is in our hearts.

Happy 54th Wedding Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Happy Anniversary! To you and to your mom. My mom and dad got married on her mom and dad's 25th anniversary - so it was always a doubly special day. My dad has passed but I still honor their anniversary and try to make it special for mom. Your words make me realize it IS something that is right and true. {hugs}
