This post reminds me how lucky I am to be here and know my own grandkids. I hope to pack enough love in that they'll remember it. All the things your dad gave to you in that short time were part of what you gave your kids, whether they realize it or not.

Hi Joy! Another heartfelt write. It's wonderful your children are able to find out more about their grandpa through your penmanship. Mmmm...as I read yours, I miss my dad too. Thank you.

Wow ... this one resonates with me big time. I was 9 years older than you when I lost my dad, but the underlying feelings are so familiar. Thanks for sharing this lovely tribute.
Hugs and blessings,

Liz

Another lovely tribute, Joy. You write so well and so movingly of loved ones.

A fine tribute to your Dad Joy, we all miss many chances to pass on stuff to our kids, and others, that we regret later, just remember to do it now when you get a chance.

Hi Joy,

I was lucky enough to have my Dad for many years. I wrote about him and his life on the Elder Story Telling Place. The article was called "Taking Dad Home To Pennsylvania". I would love to have you read it because you and I obviously felt the same way about our dads.
Your children were so fortunate in having such a good Mom who told them all about the Grandad they were missing..In loving you, your kids are loving him,too!

This is a beautiful tribute to your father, Joy. He would be so proud of you and your babies now grown...

Tear, tear, wipe, wipe...
Joyful, your Dad had to be an incredible man, look at you! You sprinkled him on your 4 cupcakes like nobody's business. You write of him so heartfully, he is in your every word, gaze and hug to your four J's! Thank you for sharing that, as my father is in my heart everyday, and brought alive by words like yours. I miss him dearly, and am grateful for the sprinkles of all the Dad's before mine!
Love you girl!

Joy, you still have time! I know your children are grown, but you can still share your thoughts about your dad with them, and with your grandchildren. That's the beautiful thing about it. Our memories don't have to be confined to just those few years after we loose our parents. We can carry them, and share them, all the rest of our lives.

This was a beautiful tribute to your father, but I bet he's most pleased with what a wonderful woman you've turned out to be!

Thanks, Dad.....you did a FINE job with Joy!

Living without the dads we love is a hard thing, indeed.

This was such a lovely remembrance. Thank you for writing it. Your dad was so young -- only 50. My dad was young, too -- 54. And I was 8 years old, so I never knew what it was like to grow up with a dad in my life. Your profile gives me just a hint of it, because my daddy was also "the man of the hour" in my life.
