Terribly. Everyday. I am a daddy’s girl, unapologetically. He held my hand through decades of my life; I held his hand as the curtain closed on his???

Listen, if you have your Father, here, now, let him know what he means to you. If you need to make things right, please do. Or at least try. ?

The thing that hurts me the most is that when I last talked to him he had gone for a medical check-up. I had processed medical insurance for him.
it’s just the other day that the guys from the insurance company called and told me ‘your dad’s insurance is ready,’ after he died. It was so painful because I wanted him to live a good life.
