Happy Fathers Day

To all the dads everywhere and here: have a beautiful meaningful one.

And this ones for you my very own Daddy Robert David:

Silly banter it went on and on. With only you I could go that way, with decades between us, you were the little brother I never had, or the big brother, but thru it all you were and are and will always be that block I am the chip of: my father my dad my bestest Friend.

At this restaurant, we were exchanging all of each others rings. …
Food took so long to arrive, we exchanged story after story. For the life of me I cant remember what we were talking here. But we were hungry. I was in a sari so it must’ve been somebody’s event
You ended up with all the rings that lunch, love you forever and ever my Dad
Our last bonfire together? I cant look at beautiful things without thinking of you. I cant go thru ugly things without remembering you. Nor go through Fathers Day without saying thank you for never leaving me alone. You’re with me and our lives. That’s so you. Your music and voice. You’re laughter and tears. Your joy and strength they meet me everyday in different ways. I miss you like crazy but somehow you’re with me. What a guy to have forever as my Dad. My dad.
Our last pic together, taken by my husband Jeff. Dad was not talking much, was very ill; wanted a ride.

Miss you terribly Dad today. Where you are, can you see this? We talked about heaven and how we’d love there forever. You asked if I’d know you? I said ofcourse I’d know you. You said we’d be ‘Ray’ and ‘Robbie’ … but would I be your daughter? I laughed and said how nice it’d be to have you as my brother …. haha! You weren’t amused as much as I was; and I realised a daughter was something too precious to exchange, or a father. And I want to hug you close and say … God who gave you to me as my Dad wouldn’t take that from me/ us. And that in heaven our tears will be sweeter our love richer for the presence of God who brought us closer.

I love you, love love you my Dad.
