Four years ago we lost a beloved member of our family. I miss him every day.

Dear Papaw,

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and miss you lots. I wish I could see you with Brendan. He's the light of my life and I'm sorry he will never get to know you. I know that he would adore you, just like me. But I know in my heart that you can see him. When he smiles in his sleep I believe that's you making him smile and I know you're probably doing something crazy... like talking Jamaican or swallowing your glasses. I whisper to him to give you a hug around the neck from me. He doesn't listen well so I hope he does it. I love you.

P.S. I still smell you whenever I smell Safeguard soap.

We all love you and miss you.

Especially this lady.


  1. Awwww, thinking of you today, Erin! Lots of love and hugs! XO

  2. Something crazy: how about "seefood"! hahaha. Austin and Lauren still talk about this one. We laugh our butts off every time too.
