The One With Roxy Ann

Just happened to see this photo on Facebook tonight. My nephew Elijah posted it of his grandpa... my dad. He is holding Roxy Ann, the golden retriever puppy he bought my mom to keep her company just a couple of months before he died of cancer. It has been three years, and it surprised me how heartbroken I have felt all night after seeing this photo. I miss him so much, and I wish he could see all the things I have done this past year. He would have loved 2011.

Ahhh. Ohhh. What a sweet thoughtful man to have that insight. Yes, I believe he would be so proud of you!

Ooooh - what a tender photo . . . I hope little Roxy Ann (who is probably very big now) is keeping your mom good company.
