Darling, darling Dada, it is so hard to believe that three long years have passed since I last saw you and heard your voice. But the memory of you is still very fresh in my mind, and I think the reason is because I think about you every day and miss you so much.
There are so many things I wish I could tell you and share with you, so many things I wish I had shared when you were in this world.
The only way I have been able to deal with your loss is in the knowledge that you are much happier now in the arms of Jesus and Our Lady, and also the knowledge that you are always with me.
Every time I feel down, I feel your presence, and it gives me such a sense of consolation. In happier moments, I wish you were still with us to share our joys and to see you smile. I long for the day that I will see you smile again and run into your arms.
When our son was born, he looked the spitting image of you, Dada, and I know you were looking down on us then, as you are now. He has changed a bit, but still holds on to your unmistakable nose.
I just wanted to let you know that although many days and many nights have passed, your spirit is still close to me, and that you are deeply loved and always will be.
With all my love,
