Blogs » My Turn » I love you just the same


My Dad passed away April 23, 2010, but before he left I got to know him like I never had before. He came to live with us here in Victoria after my Mom died. He was sick with renal failure and Alzheimer's disease. He was confused, but he knew me--I'll always treasure the fact that he remembered my name until the end.

Every now and then I re-read the blogs I wrote about him when he was alive and I'm taken back to those sometimes stressful days. But what always shines through is his funny personality and the love we had for each other.

This Father's Day and often through the year I'll remember my Dad and all the wonderful things he did for me and my brothers and sisters.

Happy Father's Day Daddio. Thank you for all you did for us while we were growing up and thank you giving me the chance to know you better.

You might be gone, but I feel your love and I look forward to the day I can see you again.
