There is always hindsight in life… Dear Dad , you raised me to The best of your abilities. I’m a adult now so I m able see how easy it could be to make mistakes and how hard it can be to raise children in such a crazy world. You never gave up as hard as it got or difficult as it was to control your anger especially when no one was there for you as a kid…no matter how bad we argued and you always told me you love me and missed me wanted to hear my sweet voice . Even if I walked away you always called me back but I never went to far I loved you to much . As much as I would get mad at you and how hard emotion you could be I truly admire your strength and abilities to be A man that provided significantly to his family when everything worked against you. Sometimes I wish I could’ve been your friend instead of your daughter so it took the pressure off of you. Thank you dad for the good, the bad and all that in between . my life is great because you instilled standards and never let me make the mistakes you did .I wouldn’t be as strong without them or as prepared for anything life throws at me . We’re coming up on a year anniversary of your death . I hope you’re resting peacefully and guiding me from above. your wife , your kids and friends miss the big guy and your crazy mood swings lol that we all knew about also fully excepted , your intoxicating laugh , your life lessons and those analogies That always seem to make sense , the best grill master/ fish fryer/out doors man in the world. Not to mention no one could scream louder than you could during my fights I can still hear you say go jess go !!!! Today’s your day dad so I’ll make two over easy eggs , deer tenderloin and one over buttered piece of toast while my listening to bluegrass. Happy father’s day Randy Eye ❤️ RIP .
