what I miss about my Dad

I lost my father 11/18/2010 and it seems like yesterday. My dad was always there for my mom, sister and me. He never said no, he was always there to help. In a world that has so much wrong he just seem so perfect. He never cursed, yelled swear or gossip, he always seen the good in people even if they were bad. What happened he went to the hospital for a reaction he had towards medication for Urinary Track infection. While in the hospital he was diagnoised with liver diease ( he wasn't a smoker or drinker). We were told that he had 2 to 6 months give or take alittle this was in April 2010, we were SHOCKED never in a million years did we expect this, he was gone seven months later November 2010. He died not knowing he was dying, we never told him make no sence to tell him. He loved life so much it would of been hard for him to except his death. What was odd was in March of that year (2010) he got his passport we were going to go on a cruise, once he looked at the photo he turned to my mom and told her I don't think Im going to live till the end of this year. He said I have no reason to say this but I have this feeling. We didn't question it again. I miss my dad so much each day it does get easier but it is still hard. The memories I have but I sort of put them away for now in the back of my mind. I think of him everyday and I do cry but thats ok. I have my time and place where I find confort in thinking of him. Thank you lord not for taking my dad but for sharing him with us all these years.
