Happy birthday, daddy

Three years ago, a bunch of our friends came over to our house and shared a toast to you. You spent the rest of the evening alone, reflecting.
You knew it would be your last birthday. You never told me what you really wished for that day, although I would have made it happen in a heartbeat. You were stoic and brave until the end.

You were the strongest man I have ever met, and every man for the rest of my life will be judged by your high standard.

I love you, daddy, and I miss you. Happy birthday.

I'm so glad I got to meet your father at Golden Gate. He was a lovely and gracious gentleman, rough edges and all. And he was rightfully proud of his lovely daughter and granddaughter.
