my sweet dad
somehow this blog http://blog.beliefnet.com/crunchycon/2009/04/one-life-to-live.html. made it to my email, its from a man out of texas..he had a lot of wonderful things to say about my sweet daddy...its incredible how many people from all around have been touched by my fathers life...its been such an honor to hear all the stories! i have been thinking alot about how sad i am that if will and i are ever able to have our own children they will never get to know their papa..i think i am going to get a journal to write down as many memories that i can think of...here are just a few... every single day growing up whenever i would leave my daddy's presence he would always say, "i love you more than God can count, remember your manners, and always look out for the little guy" i rode to school every day with him and we use to always play this game where i would hold his two fingers as tight as i could and the second i loosened up he would try and jerk them out...i think it was just an excuse for me to hold his hand:) he always use to come into my room to watch me sleep and ck on me, so many times i could hear him crying just watching me...i never ever ever doubted my fathers unconditional love for me, he told me every single time he saw me or talked to me...and i always new how proud he was of me, he supported every single thing i did and bragged on me every chance he got...my father was such a beautiful picture of our heavenly fathers love...uncondtional love that would sacrifice all things for his children...i talked to my dad the day that he died, he was coming to see me the next day on his way home. he had told many people that he was coming to tell me that he was going to do whatever he needed to do to make my surgery happen, he said that he would sell everything he had~ how undeserving am i to have a father who loved me that much??!! there are so many thousands of wonderful memories..these are just a tiny few...i am so honored to say i am the daughter of lloyd lile lindsey jr!
