Happy Birthday in Heaven


I lost my Dad on Christmas Day a couple of years ago.
He would’ve been 73 today.
Born and raised on a farm in Ohio, my Dad was a
career military officer and my hero.
I miss his smile…
his humor…
his hugs…
his love.

Happy Birthday, Dad. I hope they serve angel food cake in Heaven today.

That is so sweet!! My husband lost his mom 2 years ago this upcoming July right around her birthday. It has gone by so fast but we seem to think that one day she just might walk through the door as it seems she should still be here to enjoy being Grandma now.~~What a sweet tribute to your dad :)

Happy Birthday to your Dad Vicki! I am sure he is watching over you and eating his angel food cake! You are such a sweet daughter to pay him this tribute. I lost my Dad to cancer 21 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. I am sure your Dad is very proud of you, you are a great Mom to your kids, and great friend to people you have never met. You have a heart of gold. HUGS, Michelle

Denni,
Thank you. They say time heals ... but I don't think my heart will ever *feel better* about losing my Dad.

I know your mother-in-law is watching over you, your husband, and her precious grandchildren!

Big hugs, Vicki ♥

Thank you, Michelle ... I needed that today! There is a special bond between dads and their little girls, isn't there?

Angel food was my Dad's very favorite cake! I bake one on his birthday every year.

Big hugs, Vicki ♥

Vicki, I want to say this is a wonderful way to remember your Dad. I also know what it's like to lose someone so special to you.
I lost my 9 year old daughter three years ago. Her Birthday is also coming up soon on Sept 17th. She would be turning 13.
I was looking at some sites and came across your.
I think it's so wonderful that we can try and keep there memories with us always.Maybe they will have Angel Food Cake togther on the Birthdays with all the Angels.
Thank You, Kelly xx
