    You made me well up with this. Brought back memories of my mom before her untimely passing. BTW….thanks for being a consoling influence to me when she passed 12 years ago.

    I love the way you write and I’m sure your Daddy does as well. You are so right about the independence part. Not a gift that ever comes wrapped with a bow – but that’s a gift you have really put to use! That, combined with the beautiful person that you are and knowing the lyrics to every song, makes you the special person that you are!

    Such a beautiful, yet simple, tribute. You paint such a vivid image of your dad – and so grateful that you were able to spend so much time with him. Love ya, Lise.
