20 Years

It has now been 20 years since my father passed away. The world would be a much better place if he were still here. He was a kind, patient, and caring person that I will always look up to and draw inspiration from. I'm sure he is still watching over those that he loved, and I especially hope he'll pull some strings up there to make sure my mom's hip replacement surgery goes smoothly next week.

On many occasions I can't help but to think about how much he would have enjoyed being alive today. Like myself, he really enjoyed technology and I am reminded of him every time a new gadget, a faster computer, or a better camera is released. I think he would be blown away by smartphones, the Internet, HDTVs, modern cars, and all of the other things that exist today and we take for granted.

Dad, we miss you and wish you were here.
