Hi Daddy

Hi Daddy,

It’s me. I miss you. So much has happened in the 3 years since you’ve been gone. Millions of lifetimes it seems. I am not the same person I was then. And yet I am. I am still me, still your daughter, still your PJ, still the Pinktank, and still as clumsy and akward as ever.

I miss you, your voice, your zippy one liners, your kindness. I miss eating boiled peanuts with you, and I miss watching the lightning storms. I think of you every time one rolls in.

I hope you would be proud of me. Some daya I think you would, others not so much. I am still very imperfect and feisty. Guess I take after Mom that way.

I wiah I could find someone to love me like the way you loved her. Maybe it’s a generational thing, and men these days don’t love like that any more. I hope so though.

I moved to Texas and I often wonder what you would think about that. I know you spent time in the state but you never talked about it really.

I wonder how you are Jimmy and doing and if you have seen him where both of are.

I wonder what advice you would give me now, in the new fresh start. I still see your smile, hear your laugh. It gives me comfort to know that you are with Mom, that is the only place you wanted to be.

I am happy Dad. I made the decision to move, get away from all of the unhappy, and it has worked. I am happier than I have been in a long time. And it shows. It permeates everything I do.

I love you so much. Thank you for being the best daddy in the entire world, thank you for all of the lessons and all of the time. Thank you for everything. You are and always will be my hero.

Love you Daddy. Say hello to Mom.
