Today is my dads 81st birthday! So sad that he is not here to celebrate with us! He died at the young age of 46 from cancer. I miss him every day, his big hands, large stature, gruff voice, and wise words will never be replaced! Today as I went outside and these poppies bloomed and reminded me of him! If you were not aware the poppy is a national emblem of remembrance. Today I remember a very great man…..my dad! I love you!!
