This is my first Father's Day without my dad.  He is no longer here for me to call and wish him a happy day.  Although we never made a big deal about Father's Day, as we grew up believing that each day was a day to be treasured, I do find the passing of my dad very fresh today. 

As I look at the photo of him sitting on my desk, I can see his eyes looking back at me.  I can feel his arms around me giving me one of his famous hugs, and I know I am lucky.  I know that my dad is deep in my heart and with me in each decision I make in life.  His love is still strong, yet I miss him so much.
