Happy Father’s Day to my Dad. I grieve that the last time I hugged you was eleven years ago today. I couldn’t have known then that you would write us out of your life just a few short weeks later. You can’t fathom just how much I love you and how deeply you are missed. Thank you for how hard you worked for us. Thank you for serving our country with honor, dignity, and integrity. Through my eyes, you are a very great man. I long for the day when I am able to embrace you again. Praying for you… Always.

I believe Emily's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, says it best: Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, And sings the tune without the words, And never stops at all, And sweetest in the gale is heard; And sore must be the storm That could abash the little bird That kept so many warm. I've heard it in the chilliest land And on the strangest sea; Yet, never, in extremity, It asked a crumb of me.
