Something I Thought I'd Share...

The following is an email I sent to my mother and two brothers about my daddy.


Its funny what a difference a full year makes. As you know this week
marks the anniversary of the death of a man we all love nicknamed
"Big Rich". I suppose this is my way of honoring his memory and
accepting that sometimes life will throw curve balls your way to
enhance your strength.

I am overwhelmed with fond memories and precious times I shared with
my dad. I guess its these same feelings that are often blocking my
tears. In all honesty, I dreaded thinking of this time of year. But I
felt comfort in sending this email to you guys as a way of expressing
my love, joy, pain, and sorrow.

I've attached a few pictures I ran across this morning that inspired
me to send this to you today.

I love you,


My Daddy on Christmas 05
