My amazing dad left this world so unexpectantly and so young. It's interesting to look back and think how you wondered how you were going to get through one day much less accepting the fact that you would wake up five years later and the world would still be turning. But turn it does-- and life goes on. The hardest part for me, and truly the saddest part of it. is that there is nothing new to say, no new memories to share and it gets harder and harder to remember the little tiny details of the ones I do treasure. I truly loved my dad with all my heart--he was my mentor, best friend and biggest cheerleader. It took three years for me to cry again after my dad passed away, nothing could make me cry, nothing hurt as bad, nothing could ever compare to that black day. All of that being said, I have great faith and a knowledge that I WILL see him again, that families are a forever blessing and promise. I know that he watches over me, guides me, loves me even from behind the veil. I have felt his influence in my life every single one of those 1,826 days that he has been gone. I am proud to be David McMeen's daughter, and I am so THANKFUL for all he taught me. He inspired us to be independant thinkers, to be better each and every day than we were the day before, to work hard, to believe that we could achieve our dreams and most importantly he taught us about unconditional love. My sisters and I could not have been more blessed and we will celebrate his amazing life today! I've said it before but it is and was amazing to live in a family where we had no regrets, nothing was left unsaid, we KNEW he loved us and he KNEW we loved him. I am so GRATEFUL for that.
Dad, I love you so much and I miss you so much. We have so much "hoch" to catch up on!
