dear dad

dear dad,
thank you for all that you gave me during my first 21 years of life.  i miss your smile, your wisdom, your laugh, your hugs, and your unconditional love.  there are days that i wish so much you were still alive.  i am very thankful that you documented many things in your journal and my journal so that i can remember the little stuff, which is so easy to forget.  with just a turn of a page your wisdom and love comes back to me when it is needed most.

small excerpt written by my dad, taken from my baby book/journal....

Today we all went to church, to watch General Conference.  It was nice to have the kids with us.  I had to get after Skye for teasing Brandon.  She pouted, but she was so cute that all I could think about is how sweet she has always been.  I thought about holding her in church when she was just a few days old, and thinking about what a special young lady she would become.  She has certainly lived up to those expectations and then some.  I love her more than I know. 

i love you dad.


  1. Skye that was beautiful. What a wonderful tribute to your awesome Dad. How great to be able to have your Dad's words on paper and to turn to them for that comfort you need when you just want to hug your Dad. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Skye that brougt tears to my eyes and then almost made me cry!! Your dad was very a special person. I know yesterday was still probably a hard day for you but I want you to know that I think you are definitely a strong, beautiful and special person! I love you!!

  3. That's SOOOOO cool that you have things like that, written by him, in your baby journal. This makes me so glad that Jess and I have made sure to keep up with their baby books, and now the blog.

  4. Awww...Skye Lee, I was thinking of you yesterday on Father's Day and hoping you weren't too sad. That is awesome that you have his journal so you can feel close to him when you're sad. I'm sure he's watching you and is so proud of you! Love you!

  5. you are all sweetie pies and i love you!
