Today, 2 years ago, was Daddy’s accident. How time flies! How ironic that during the love month, I lost my daddy. Oh the love I have for him! I was so blessed! Mama says I am a lot like him. :) Through the good times and bad, HE WAS MY DADDY! I LoVe remembering the good times…………

  • all the movies we went to see
  • all the places we loved to eat~ The old Cherokee, The Buccaneer, PIZZA~He loved pizza too!
  • all the fun vacations at Jekyll and Disney World
  • the times he would sneak me money
  • all the times he let me sign the ticket to charge my gas
  • 7th and 12 grade when he escorted me at Homecoming
  • the IGA conventions
  • the years I worked at the IGA~ I truly cherish these!
  • those Sunday afternoons when he would let me sit in his lap and drive
  • watching him with Parker
  • having him there when Cooper was born
  • those kisses on top of my head
  • the times he said "hey babe"

What a great tribute to Pat! I still laugh when I think of seeing him when Patrick and I got engaged and he pretended like he didn't know I had that ring but he was "pretty sure" he had bought one just like it! I was mortified! He was so funny!! Love you!

I'm so sorry, Heidi. He sounds like he was an incredible Dad. I know I don't have to tell you what a blessing it is to have those memories of your time with him.

I know you miss him greatly! I actually remember too! I was sitting in my eye appointment when I found out and I remember it was an election day! I was talking with someone about Royce the other day, and they had lost track of the years..... I told them I remembered exactly! They were both good men and missed a lot!!
