. . . valentines da[y]vis . . .

. . . my dad loved valentines day . . .
. . . you can see why . . .

. . . so we spent some time
this valentines day evening . . .
. . . remembering him . . .
. . . and trying our best to smile . . .

. . . even though
we really really really really miss him . . .
. . . and then we did
exactly what he'd want us to do . . .

. . . we went to el charro, of course! . . .

. . . happy birthday, dad . . .

Oh wow Aunt Steph! What a great day! That is exactly how we should remember our loved ones and that is how they would want us to. Wish that could happen with my fam. Best wishes. Your Niece, Melissa

Of course you did! I loved your dad and know how much you miss him. I should have gone with you to El Charro, his taste was always the very best!

oh what a great touching moment. I miss my dad too, over 17 years ago since he met the Lord. Hang in there. He loves you from above. :)
