Tomorrow our first born will turn 14. It will be her second birthday without her dad. WITHOUT her dad and the 2nd of many more birthdays to come without her dad. She is going to the cemetery tomorrow to visit. My heart hurts that this is our reality. But this is our reality. It is hard to be a teenager. It is hard to be a teenager who lost your awesome dad. It is hard.
Our darling. On your 14th birthday you are loved, you are cherished and you are one of the best gifts that your dad ever received. Don't ever forget his love is with you always. I love you Merriweather. I love you, always.
