In Loving Memory

This song makes me cry every single time I hear it. The words just speak to me and speak to how much I desperately miss my Dad. I feel like all I've done today is to cry. Today it's been two years since the day my Dad passed away. It still breaks my heart that he is gone. Every day I miss you so much more than the day before. Nothing seems the same without him here.
