Two years now, Daddy, without
you here. How I miss you, now
more than ever. Put up a tree,
but it's not the same --- missing
something. The ornaments,
the lights don't glitter like they
used to. They blur in a wash of
tears. Christmas just doesn't
feel like Christmas --- it's just
another day. No cards, no
letters, no phone calls --- no
laughter. That's what I miss the
most. All I have to unwrap are
memories and sadness. I wish
Santa could bring you back to
me --- that would be my greatest
Christmas present ever. Merry
Christmas, Daddy --- tell Jesus
'Happy Birthday' for me ...
Love, your little girl,

|I am so sorry Karla, that kind of a loss is difficult to endure especially when it is so recent as two short years. Your faith will help you endure and keeping your dad in your memory shall never die.
|Reviewed by Phyllis Jean Green
|I am so sorry, Karla.
As for the poem, it says worlds about you and your dad. Such a
wonderful tribute! Poignant and down-to-earth and sweet.
He was so lucky to have you. (No, IS. And he loves the poem. Other
angels may be a wee-tad tired of hearing him brag. Keeps reading it
aloud and shouting, "My Karla wrote this!!"
But then, everyone loves you.
Christmas and New Year Blessings from me, Ray, & Nicky the Wonder Dawg

|A sad and touching write. Sometimes just putting our pain into words is helpful.
|Reviewed by Rose Rideout
|Karla dear, your Dad is looking down from the most wonderful place, surrounded by love and peace. He wants you to unwrap those special MEMORIES those important times and give thanks to God above for giving you the opportunity of making them. Dress your tree and watch your Dad smile through each light as they glitter. I turn the lights on my tree and I see my Mom and I hear her beautiful voice as she sang her favorite Christmas Carols. Have a wonderful Christmas and know He is with you always.
Newfie Hugs, Rose

|i know that feeling, still missing my father who died in 1972. He was the greated man and loved living, but died before his time too.
Missing people is natural around the Christmas Season but we have reasons to go on celebrating as they would wish us to I am with you all the way and hope you have a Veery Happy Christmas.

I know losing your Dad was very rough on you and Karen. But I'm sure your father would want you to be happy. Even though you miss him, he's still in your heart. He can never really die. Peace and love to you. Merry Christmas. Mary
