Today would have been my dad's 88th birthday. I still miss him terribly. I love you, Dad. Happy Birthday.

Happy birthday to a great dad who raised a beautiful daughter.

My dad and I always celebrated our birthdays together on his birthday (mine on 11/21 and his on 11/23). I celebrated mine on his birthday this year. It just didn't seem right to do it any other way and will continue to do so from here on out.

Sending warm hugs to you today:)
