Happy Birthday Daddy

Today would have been my Daddy's 79th birthday. Could that be?
I had the most amazing Dad. I spent 24 years with him and I always felt like his little girl.
It makes me so happy to know that he is looking out for me and cheering me on. I wish you all could have met him, you would have really thought he was cool. He loved to talk about archaeology, hot rods, movies and his children.
I miss him a lot.

Dear Daddy,
Happy Birthday.
You sure are an old fart.
I think about you everyday.
I love that when I look in the mirror I see you looking back at me some days.
I still have your nose and I have your baby face too.
I think your really would have loved my Daniel.
He has hands like yours.
I hope you're watching over our little "future" babies up there.
I hope they get Grandmother's fashion sense.
I can still hear you singing K-K-K-Katy to me in my head.
I love you Daddy-Bear.
xoxo,
your Fritzi
p.s. Give Rags a squeeze for me.

I love this. I know I would have loved him. I enjoy hearing and learning more about him. I have to give him some of the credit for helping my kids to love "Singing in the Rain." He helped you love it---then you and my dad introduced it to me and the kidlets. It's now a favorite for sure. Thanks!
I know he's watching over you and LOVES who you are. He must be so proud.
