I always feel like my Dad is with me. Today is the 1st anniversary of his passing, and I reach into my pocket and find the prayer book from his funeral in my pocket. Had no idea it was there. Dad…
‘I thought of you with love today.
But that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
I think of you in silence.
I often speak your name.
I know you’re always with me.
But it is not the same.
Your memory is a keepsake.
With which I’ll never part.
The moments are always with me.
I have you in our heart.’
Jim Valvano’s words always ring in my ear…
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”
