    In my daughter's eyes
    I am a hero
    I am strong and wise

    I see who I want to be
    In my daughter's eyes
    In my daughter's eyes
    Everyone is equal

    You would think I would have more pictures since he was at our house all the time, but this one is the best. He just pronounced us married, then said our name wrong. It was just so funny! He had a great sense of humor ❤️

    This was when you helped pack me up from my dorm one summer in college. You had just done a cleanse and were “feeling good.” You’ve always been so good at being present through all of life’s many transitions.

    Caiden had the biggest smile every time he saw you and almost always started jumping out of excitement upon the sight of your face, whether in person or virtual. It breaks my heart he won’t get to know you across time (it’s one of the reasons I had...  more

    I am so grateful for our Father/Daughter dance at my wedding this year in March. It is one of the most precious moments that I've had with my Dad. He was nervous beforehand because he doesn't know how to dance. I said all we have to do is sway back and...  more
