The Pea said...

Thank you S'mee I miss him alot today and that was just what I needed. Somtimes I feel like he is the only other person in the world who would truly understand me and I that it that he is not here. It is nice to know I fit in somewhere even if I have to wait for it to come.

Your Dad loved to dance.
Games, games games, we played so many as kids, your dad was banned from playing chutes and ladders! His favorite game was Risk.
I don't know what you mean with #73. Until he wwent on a mission, most days your dad had to be dragged out of bed. He changed abit on his mission. But sleep was very important to him.

I have a picture of your dad out with a girl in a tuxedo at McDonalds. He took a lace tablecloth and flowers for the table.

Your dad loved wet kids too! He was always in charge of baths.

You used to cry silently, then we'd hear a thud on the floor because you had held your silent cry so long you passed out.

You are one of five children that came so quickly into the world and there was never a time your dad wasn't ecstatic to be their dad. He loved every minute of it.

You can go to Hawaii with my husband and stay with my friends in their multimillion dollar home for free. I'll stay with your husband as flying over oceans scare the heck out me too!

My mom told me one time that My He thought sleep was a waste of time. I wonder if he just thought like me.. I wish I could sleep in in the mornings and still have all the time in the world to do everything I want to do.
And hey when Matthew is a top notch pilot I will take you up on that trip to Hawiaii and then we can fly for free too.

chronicler said...

As he got older he saw sleep as a waste of time, I think that had a lot to do with his shortened timeline. The HG spoke to him quite a bit.

The Pea said...

He used to tell my mom that he did not think he would live a full lifespan. It is one of her biggest regrets because she would not let him talk more about what he was feeling. IT scared her then but, now she wishes she knew more.

chronicler said...

He lived a full life span durin gour childhood. But he saved the best for last, he adored your mother and each of you were a gift.
