Today marks 14 years that my dad's been gone. He died from lung cancer, years after he quit smoking.
He was everything to his 4 daughters. We were all Daddy's girls. This pic is of him holding me & my sister Marie before the twins were born so I might have been about 3 or 4 (in the fabulous plaid ensemble). He always liked to show how strong he was & carry us both at the same time.
Some of his regrets was that he'd never see us finish growing up & get married. Never get to see his grandchildren...He would've been the BEST grandpa!!
