Two years since the tragic day

My dear daughter Stephanie –

It’s been two years now since we lost you, and it’s not any easier.  They always say that time heals all woulds, but so far I’m not seeing that happen with me.  It’s every bit as difficult as it has always been.  Sure, I manage to get out of bed and function in life, but the hole I have in my heart from not having you with us is still there.  There isn’t a day that goes by where something doesn’t remind me of you.

I miss you so much, and I think about you every day. We took your brothers and sisters to Disneyland, and I remembered how much you liked going there.  I had so much fun with you at Disney World, and Sea World, and all the amusement parks we got to share together.  Remember the time at Six Flags in Illinois on our special Daddy-daughter date?  We spent the whole day there, and only got to ride 3 rides because the lines were so long…  The best part was going to eat Krispy Kreme donuts after we left the park.

I wish you were here with us, and that you were able to share our life in Southern California now.  You would have loved it here, with the Pacific ocean right next to us and the beautiful warm weather.

I hope you are happy where you are, and that you’re smiling and laughing.  I miss that.  I miss you.

I love you,
