8:30, a man in his 80s arrived at the hospital. He was in a hurry, he had an appt at 9:00. I asked if he had another doctors appt. He said he had to go to the nursing home for breakfast with his wife, a victim of Alzheimers. I asked if shed be upset he was late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, she had not recognized him in 5 yrs. I asked, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’ He smiled and said, ‘She doesnt know me, but I still know her.’
Daddy, you've been gone now for 31 years next month. I have already out lived you by 8 years....and I will always be so proud that YOU were my Daddy. I still love you and miss you so. Just today at a mall I saw something that reminded me of you, and a tear came to my eye. Thank you for all the sacrifices you made for me. PS---I always knew I had you wrapped round my little finger. ❤
