I love my Dad

I lost my dad last month
on February 9
the best father in the world
and he was mine

When I was little
his arms would open wide
he would get down on his knees
and give me a pony ride

He always was happy to see me
he would squeek "Marieeeee"
A smile from ear to ear
and a huge hug for me

I remember he was very tired from working overtime
fingers smelled of grease and oil
his name on his white work shirt "Steve"
loved to help people, and
he always had time for his little girl

My Dad was brilliant
he made many inventions
sold them all over the US
some still used today in cars
and all sefl taught

Even though he had just a high school diploma
he helped me with my college assignments

He was selfless, he saved a family with 10
kids from losing their house as their father had
lost their job

I remember he sold our piano
which was his pride and joy
just to make sure his employees
were paid

when ever we would go on vacation
it was difficult to get there
because he would stop and help
every person on the side of the road
whose car had broken down

He head a passion for music
and despite his hands being crippled by rheumatoid
he managed to play the trombone and piano and teach
little ones to play music .... then he would go to rest homes
even in his 80's and bring those kids and he and the kids
would sing and play music for the forgotten elderly in the
convelescant hospitals

All my friends call him Dad.

He was funny and loved to play with language...
light bulbs were light "blubs"

They will always be "light blubs" to me Dad I miss you... I love you!!!

Mom misses you too!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your Dad, and in reading about him it's clear he had a hard-working, fun, charitable and lively life and was a great Dad and a super friend to all he met. I loved reading what you wrote and what a fantastic legacy to remember him by.

Mom really misses you. Her memory has gotten so much worse since your death. I think that maybe God did that so she wouldn't feel the pain of you being gone as much. You were the best Dad in the world! How come God blessed me so!??!!
