What a sweet tribute to your dear father.....

Debbie White

Found your blog this morning and it is beautiful! Thank you for the invitation for more tea. I hope to get to "visit" with you often.


You made me cry! What a lovely tribute. And your dad was handsome!


Your dad was indeed very handsome!
I could have written the line "he adored me, no matter what" about my own dad, whom I miss every day.
Thinking of you on your Dad's special day, and wishing you some gentle peaceful moments.

I hope you had a happy birthday, I'm sure that in your heart and memory your Dad is still tucking you under his arm.


Your Daddy looks so handsome in that photo! Congrats on making it to the front page of Typepad yesterday Charlotte! You are on a roll sister!

How lovely your memories are. Cherish them always!


What a lovely tribute to your father Charlotte. He sounds like the most wonderful daddy a girl could have. May your heart delight in sweet memories of him today and feel his embrace.


What a lovely tribute to an adored father. My dad is gone too, but sometimes, right out of the blue, I think of the sweet little things he said and did. It's like he's there whispering.

Lovely sentiments, Charlotte! What a darling girl with her handsome daddy. Getting teary. I am grateful to still have my dad.


Oh Charlotte, that is so touching. You have so many fond memories to charish!


I just found your lovely blog and have to say these touching memories you have shared have really gotten me all choked up....after reading what you shared, brought all the precious times I had with my daddy back to my mind. Thanks for that :)


This was truly lovely, and reminds me of me and my daddy. He died when I was 8, but I have such similar memories. Thank you for the gift of your entry.

What is it about girls and their dads? I loved your tribute to your dad. I miss my dad and wish he could see his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Maybe he can.


This is a sweet, sweet post. And happy birthday to you! And happy little Typepad celebration, too!



How blessed you are! Wow what a handsome Father. I wish all children could have such a positive start in life...the world would be a much different place.


Love this post about your dad, Charlotte. Happy belated birthday to you both. I long for that one last hug from my sweet daddy-o, too. We're lucky girls to have had such great dads. Blessed, blessed, blessed.
