Talking Dictionary 772. Happy Father's Day In Heaven


772. Dear Dad,
You're in heaven now. Mom and I'll be joining you there eventually. I visit her every weekend. I think she's adjusted to your absence. When she talks about you now, she sounds strong; she never tears up. She'll probably be joining you next, and then I'll be following her. I can't wait to see you two together again. You were like two parts of a picture puzzle; you were different, but you were a perfect match. Of course, you should still be together here on Earth. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you lying in your hospital bed that morning, telling me over the phone, "I'm out of breath." Not a day goes by that I don't kick myself for not alerting the hospital staff. You died that afternoon because I failed you that morning. You gave me life, Dad; I gave you death. 3.3
