Wish we could blow out your candles...

DAD (aka Bill or Billy)

(February 1950-November 1986)

Today, Feb. 20th, 2010 is a day that never happened for my Dad. He would have been 60 yrs. old today! I wish we could have celebrated with a big party and by blowing out 60 candles on a cake. My Dad died in a car accident just 2 miles away from his home when he was only 36 yrs. old...I was 17! I will always wonder what "would have been"! I think he would have been an amazing Grandpa (or Papa, PePaw, Gramps???) I really do miss my Dad. This birthday krept up on me...I can't believe he would have been 60 today! time flies!

I wonder what he would have looked like today...would he have aged well? Would he be totally gray headed? Would he have a belly? Would he still be a funny goofy guy that made everyone laugh? Would he still jump out from around corners and scare me? Would he still have that smile like he was up to something? Would he still cook me a mean supper (he COULD cook!)? Would he have liked how I turned out (I sure hope so)? I know my kids would have loved him! I'm sure he would have let them "break the rules"! So many questions that I'll never have an answer for...

You just never know what life holds...Go grab the ones you love and give them a great big hug! Life can change in a split second only 2 MILES from home!!!

Love you and miss you Dad!! Hope they're having a party for you in Heaven!! :)
