Where are you when I need you?

Have you ever had this need to talk to somebody that you know you can't?  Today I have had this feeling all day.  I have needed to talk with my dad. The problem is there is no way to reach him. He passed away 3 years ago.  He had a short, yet long battle with cancer that ended suddenly.  By all doctor accounts he was getting better with no cancer left.

After thinking about him all day, I came across picture while looking for a picture of my son.  It was like finding a message from him.
 The picture was taken 2 months before he passed away.  This is the moment I have needed all day!


  1. So touching. I can feel the need coming through your words. I am glad you found his picture.

  2. Pictures bring great memories that brighten days! I am glad your photo did that for you!

  3. What a sweet slice. Thank you for sharing this with us. Isn't it weird how finding a picture like this, can make it all better?

  4. Losing my parents was the hardest thing I have ever experienced. There are some days that I miss them with an overwhelming sadness. I'm so happy that you found "the moment" you needed!

  5. Jessica,
    You broke my heart with your slice. I can't imagine wanting to talk to my dad and not being able to. It's a side of losing someone I've never considered. Your slice is powerful with just a few words. And that picture? It's a treasure. Thanks for sharing it.
