Letter to my father
Updated: Jun 20, 2019
Today marks the eighteenth anniversary of my father’s passing. I was only seventeen when he succumbed to cancer and despite what many people say time does not heal all wounds.
There is not a day that goes by when I don’t think about him and, as an adult, I find myself longing to be able to talk to him and ask his advice on all of the grown up issues that I have to deal with.
As a mother, I now find myself understanding all of the difficulties he and my mother went through when I was a child and appreciating more the sacrifices that they made just to ensure that I was happy.
Although my father is no longer with us, I firmly believe that it is never too late to show your appreciation so I thought that it would be a great idea to write my dad a letter to commemorate the anniversary of his death.
