My daddy passed away in 2005. Each year the funeral home holds a celebration on life around Christmas with each family placing an ornament on the tree in remembrance. Each year a new ornament is added along with ornaments from previous years.
This year is my turn to make the ornament.
This has taken much thought, mainly because :
1. I was Daddy's girl
2. I miss him more each and every day.
3. I wanted to honor him in the best way I knew how.
Here is the ornament I was finally able to finish....after much crying each time I tried to work on it.
Inside the card reads:
His favorite color-
Like his smiling eyes is blue
Made of pure gold
His Faith- Unshakable
He placed everything in God's hands
Fragile and precious , like the finest crystal
The work on this piece- imperfect
Just like his "baby girl"
Loving husband, son, brother, uncle, grandpa, and even
The most wonderful Daddy in the world
God truly broke the mold when he created you.
You are missed more with each passing day.
We Love you.
