Last Valentine’s Day, my Dad sent me roses along with a card with his expression of how much he loved me and treasured me as his daughter.
When I called to thank him, he said…”I want you to always know and remember how deeply you are loved.”
My Dad died two months later.
The night before he died, we were talking on the phone and in his usual strong and clear voice he said… “I love you very much. See you tomorrow. I am going to sleep now.”
Dad wouldn’t let me see him weak, feeling poorly, or down and out. No matter how bad he was feeling, he would rally when talking to me. He wanted me to see him as always strong and as my protector and hero. When I knew he wasn’t feeling well and would try and comfort him. He would say, “Don’t worry. I am fine.” He never wanted me to worry. He wanted me to be happy.
Daddy died the next day, while I was on my way to see him.
His last words to me are imprinted on my heart, along with his private thoughts and sentiments that he shared with me his last few months on earth…
Daddy, you will always be strong, my protector and my hero. I love you Daddy. Happy Valentines!
Always let your loved ones know how much you love them…
Happy Valentines and much love to all my followers…
