    It will be the 22nd fathers day without my dad. He died at 49 years old of a massive heart attack. Never got to say good bye to him. I miss him all the time and just once would love to get one of his bear hugs once again. One day I say , One day when I meet him in Heaven. I know he is watching over our family and he shows us signs alot.. Hubby is also has a fatherless fathers day his dad died 3 years ago. A lot fresher in our minds but he was very sick and suffered for 4 years before dying. No death is is easy but I feel when someone is that ill it is more bearable because you know their suffering is over. We miss them both so much . I was a big daddy's girl and always will be .

    My Dad isn't here this Father's Day either....I lost him in 2008 to cancer.
    I'm not quite sure he made it to heaven tho :-/

    But....I miss him nonetheless.

    My bio- is deceased, adoptive has already been called. Will call my cousin (?) *hard to tell with the generational split, but his dad was my dad's brother, however my dad was the youngest of nine so the generations are all skewed. My cousin has a daughter my age. Closest I can get to saying Happy Dad's Day in that neck of the woods, so I'll call him. :)

    For those of you that are fatherless today.......
    My heart to yours.

    For those of you that still have a father.....
    Tell him you love him. I told my father that I love him.
