Father’s day 

Dear Zachary,

It’s Father’s day and I have you and my daddy weighing heavy on my mind. 

I think about my daddy and remember all he meant to me. I think of all he meant to you. I remember how hard it was for you when he died. The first in a series of losses for us in 2013.

2013 concluded with your departure from earth. I think of what you would be doing now. Would you be a father yet?  I say yet because I feel certain it would have happened if you had lived. I remember when you held your niece, Hailey Grace, and said “I want one”. There is no doubt you would have been a great father. You showed it in the way you protected your baby brother, helped care for Papaw in his last years, and played with your niece and nephew.

Those of us who love you, miss you everyday. Those who knew you, still think of you, and those who never met you don’t realize what they missed out on.

Love, Mom
