i lost my dad 16 days ago. i absolutely adored him. my parents & i were always like the three musketeers and his absence now is paralyzing. i miss him terribly and wish i could see him and touch his hands one more time. the above picture is of clearwater beach, a beautiful spot along the gulf of mexico, that my parents & i used to visit often. we're headed there this weekend to lay his ashes & bring him back home to florida.
