Dad, You didn't know much that went on when you were in the hospital, but that's probably for the best. I want you to know that I sat by your bed for 2 weeks while you were waiting for your open heart surgery. You never thought you could make it through a surgery like that but you did such a good job. Daddy, you're so brave. I'm so sorry that I had to go back to school, but I know that's what you would've wanted anyway. This past Thanksgiving was the best I've ever had. I'll always remember sitting next to you in the ICU watching the parade. You were so wide awake and responsive, and it was just you and me like it always has been. You know when I was at school I called you every single day and had the nurse hold the phone up to your ear so I could talk to you just to try and cheer you up a bit. I'm so sorry you had to be by yourself there. It kills me to think of that, but you held on and you fought like you always did. Dad, if you weren't suffering I would've sat by that bed with you for the rest of my life. I want to thank you for waiting for me to get back so we could spend your last day together before you left. I know you waited for me. You and God planned it just perfectly for me. I still can't believe you're gone. It's been 2 and a half months. Everyone was really sad to hear that you died. Dad, I really miss you. I just wish I could give you a big hug and a kiss. I love you and miss you.
