Today marks six years since my dad passed away. It’s been a hard six years but I do believe that life is getting better and that I am who I am because of how amazing of a person he was.
Below are some of my favorite pictures of him. He was an amazing person and I am so happy to have had him in my life!
Enjoy your weekend everyone, and always live life to the fullest 🙂
This is us on an airplane. Jet-setting since I was a baby!
This is him from the 80’s, I believe. I have tons of photo albums from him and he was big on solo traveling. He worked at the airlines when he was alive, and enjoyed the perks of free airfare as much as he could.
This is him in the 70’s I believe. It was for a newspaper ad I think.
Awwwhh! It sucks doesn’t it? Sorry you’re hurting. That really never goes away, but the great memories keep you going. It took me years to even voice his death, l would just talk about him as if he were still alive. That was my coping mechanism. April is a bittersweet month for me for various reasons. You looked so cute in the picture on the plane and l’m sure he is proud of the person you have become. Keep it up!
I am so sorry for your loss! He looked like an incredible man!!!
Thinking of you today!!! 🙂

I’m sorry for your loss Michelle. My mom died about the same time, and while time has taken some sting off the loss…..I continue to miss her a ton. I hope you have a good Easter weekend
Big hugs to you today Michelle. I lost my dad almost three years ago and I know how tough it can be to not have my own dad around.
Thanks for sharing a little bit of him with us today.

I’m going on three years since we lost my dad. It’s so incredibly tough, no matter how long it’s been. But it’s really fun to be able to look back on the photos to remember him.
Michelle, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know anniversaries of losing a loved one are difficult, but I hope cherishing the happy memories you have and going through these pictures helps a little today. Thank you for sharing this with us.

The photo of him on the camel is really amazing. Looks like he lived life to the fullest. Which is something we could all be better at I bet. Hugs!
