Today marks the 41st anniversary of my Dad's passing. So many years have passed.So many major events. Weddings,births etc. I can still remember that day like it was yesterday.It was one of the worst days of my life.I felt like a part of me died that day too.
For so many years I dreaded this day. The memories,the pain....then on November 16th 2005 that all changed.I had just gotten out of class when my phone rang. Our lil Sammi was born.She was about 3 weeks early but she was healthy and beautifu. I remember my sister following up the information with a "You know what day it is don't you?"
For so many years we dreaded this day now all that has changed. It is no coincidence that Sammi was born on this day. Not only does she bear the same name as my Dad but she was born the same exact time that he passed....All these years later Sam(my dad) gave my sister,brother and I a gift in the form of a reason to celebrate this day.Now our tears are tears of joy! Thank You Dad...and Happy Birthday Sammi! xoxoxoxoxoxo
