I really want to be missed

I really love being a dad...My girls are grown up now but I still want to be with them, talk to them, and much to their chagrin protect them. Jenny always tells me "I'm 28 dad I can handle it myself".... When they were younger I would always stand up for them if they were wronged..this included visits to teachers and principals. They were a bit embarrassed about it but as they got older they liked the idea that someone would be there for them...
As I said I love being a dad....I have told my wife and girls that when I die I want to be missed..A LOT... I want them to say how will we go on without him... of course they will though...what i mean is this...I want to be a good husband and father..dedicated to my wife and family... And when it is my time to go home to heaven they will always remember me fondly and yes always miss me...
PS This means you too Kavi! ( I love being a grandpa too)


  1. Sometimes all you need to know is that your dad would do anything for you than for him to actually do everything. I knew my dad was there for me if I needed him and I'm sure your girls know that too. Dolly and the girls could survive when your gone, but they would survive because of how much you love them. The Lord and that love is what will carry them through. I don't think there is any question that you would be sorely missed.
