A year ago today...

It's hard to believe that a year has gone by since Daddy died. I'm sitting here this morning while the rest of my little family sleeps. We've added one more to the mix and Daddy would have been happy to know little Julius as he's a happy child.
I remember the first time I took Savannah to Georgia and Daddy kept telling me he couldn't believe that she never cried... she, like Julius, was always smiling more than crying. She certainly did cry, but apparently not enough to turn her Grandpa off.
I've already cried this morning as I heard "The Green, Green Grass of Home" by Porter Wagoner. Daddy loved Porter Wagoner and that song is probably the most fitting to be played today as I think of him.
I wanted to post the video I made last year about Daddy... there are so many things I could say about him, but those who knew him already know what type of person he was.
We loved him and he loved us... even if he didn't always know the best way to show it.
I miss him every day and I hate that he won't know my children because he loved little Savannah so much and I know he would have felt the same about Julius.
I sit here with tears in my eyes thinking about the last time I saw him alive and how bad he felt then... less than a month later he was gone.

So sorry about your dad. I lost my dad many many years ago but my mom just died in 2000 so that's a short time ago. She lived next door so I think of her every time I go out and get in the car. We were good friends!
Hope you have a nice weekend.
