You know what really brings down the mood. Realizing that you will never have that father daughter dance at your wedding that is cherished by dads and new brides alike. All my life I have been dreaming of the perfect wedding (what little girl hasn’t?) and now realizing that my daddy will never be able to dance with me breaks my heart. Just a thought.
Just can’t seem to get you out of mt mind. I may not be home very much now and days but I can still notice when something is missing. Your parents didn’t get a tree this Christmas and that breaks my heart. Every day I wish you were still here. Even though we grew apart through the years I will always have a spot in my heart for all the memories we made fishing and camping together, making forts in the shrubs in your backyard, floating down the Clackamas in the summer, riding our bikes in the field before the houses were built, playing in the snow and making jumps, covering the entire street in confetti, your first day at View Acres in Mr. Sack’s class, the one time i spilled EVERY drink at all you can eat taco night, playing GTA and Tony Hawk in your room until my mom called me home, running around having air soft gun fights, fucking with Andy’s hamster, climbing every tree we could, our pine cone wars and so much more. You were the best neighbor a girl could ask for and you were so helpful to my family after my dads accident. I will always remember you and will never forget the fun times we shared growing up. It really is true what the say, the good really do die young. From the moment I heard the news and saw your name in articles I was in disbelief. You were a great friend, neighbor, fisherman and man Joey. I am so glad I got to be part of your life and will cherish the stories, pictures and memories forever. At least you went doing something you loved. Gone fishing has a whole new meaning to me. Continue to rest in peace up there bud. We’ll all see you soon. Have a beer with the big man for me!
When I’m upset I usually want to do one (or all) of the following:
Usually those do the trick. But what do I do when I already did yoga, my best friend is busy and chocolate is just not gunna happen?!
You guesses it!! I sit my ass on the sofa and watch wedding shows. ALL. DAMN. DAY.
I don’t think I have ever had a background on my phone last as long as this one. It’s a sad reminder that 6 months ago the world lost a great man. My childhood friend and neighbor. I have so many memories of him and it’s sad to think that those 9 years we spent together are the only years we would spend together. I know that he will always be in my heart and that he is in a better place now but there will always be that part of me wishing that he could be back on this planet. On a lighter note, he went doing what he loved, fishing. I miss you Joey, always will. You were a great man and there won’t be a day that I don’t wish you were back in the neighborhood.
