Seems Like Just Yesterday

Tomorrow, August 22nd will mark four years since my father left this earth to live out his eternal life in Heaven. After a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer, my daddy drew his last breath on a Saturday, August 22, 2015 at approximately 6:15 p.m.

It seems like just yesterday, I saw him last.

My father was an extraordinary man and human being. He was like no other I’ve ever known. His faith was unshakable, even during great sickness. He believed without a shadow of doubt that God would heal his sick and dying body. He was truly an inspiration to not just myself, but everyone he came into contact with.

It seems like just yesterday, I saw him last.

I can still close my eyes and feel his arms wrap around me, in a hug like only a father could give; a hug like only MY father could give. I wish he were here today so I could hug him again, even just one more time.

A Moment Between Father and Daughter

For You Daddy
