Sometimes it seems like yesterday other times it seems like it he has been gone too long. Seven years ago today my stepfather passed away. He lost his battle with cancer in the morning hours of February 17th. I think about him often and the grandfather my children only know in memories. My daughter (named after my stepfather) never met him but she knows who he is.
I posted this some time ago and thought it appropriate to post again today. It was a poem I wrote for my daughter about her Grandfather, her angel.
