Father's Day Gift!

When Mom and I went to the Hamburg craft show this spring we stopped at a booth that made cement pieces. I about died when I saw this piece. I had been looking for something special for Dad's grave and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was perfect.

Since Chris is taking Welding Technology in school, I knew he could make a stand for it.

We love the way it looks at the grave, and we are sure that Dad loves it.

Check out what Kim and his softball team did on Father's Day HERE.

Looks Better!

Chris and I decided that Dad's grave site needed to be fixed up a little bit.

We went and looked for something to make it easier for us to plant around the headstone. We bought these scalloped gray bricks and went to work. Chris dug out the grass and got the edging put in. We added fresh top soil, some red impatiens and a layer of mulch.

We think it looks much better and should be easy upkeep.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Picture taken June 2002

This would be your day to shine.
The stars will have to do it for you.
There's not a day that goes by that you are not thought of.
This time of year is just the hardest.
You see, it's your birthday then Father's Day
then the anniversary of your death.
All within a couple of weeks.
You were taken from us by cancer.
You fought a long and hard battle.
Now we cannot share these days with you anymore.
We can still hear you laugh.
We make sure we think of it often.
We don't want to forget how you sound.
Anyway, Dad, We just wanted to say
Happy Birthday to You.
You are missed so very much.

Today is my birthday!

This is a picture of my dad and me on my first birthday. Our family was in Florida visiting my Great Grandma and Great Grandpa.

Every year on my birthday dad would call and sing me happy birthday. If I wasn't home he would leave it on our answering machine. Oh how I wish I would have saved one of those messages. The things we take for granted.

This is the last picture that was taken of my Dad and me. (June 28th, 2008) This was one of his good days. He was staying at Hopes lodge. Chris and I would drive out every weekend to visit with him and he would harass the hell out of me for bringing my camera with. I am glad I did.

I miss you Dad!

Love, Your Baby Girl
