Happy Father's Day Dad - I Really Miss You!

Enrico Micheal Falco and his sons - December 1999

This is such a tough day so far. I've been up just about an hour and been crying while sitting here thinking of my dad. So hard to believe next month will be a year he's been gone......seems like just yesterday I got that call from New Jersey tell me.

I'm sure my brother Rick, pictured above with my Dad in 1999 is having similar thoughts. Anyway, Dad, I miss you, I love you, you were one hell of a father, you were there for us, you taught me the difference of right and wrong, and shared your wisdom and life experience!

You worked two jobs near the end of each year when we were younger so there could be Christmas Presents under the tree, and that's just one of the memories of you I cherish.

Happy Father's Day Dad!!! I'd give anything to have you with me today.

I'm off to exercise Pop; today makes 10 weeks I've been on a diet and exercise, or lifestyle modification. I know how you worried about my weight, and I know you'd be proud of me.

Chris,

I hope and pray that your day goes well.

The photograph is a wonderful image that certainly shows the love you feel for your father.

David - Thank you my friend. I am doing fine, I was just missing my dad earlier. I take comfort in the fact that he is look (up/down??) on me this day, and every day. I know without a doubt that he knew how much I loved him.

Chris,

Ultimately, it is most important that your father realized your love for him. My father and I were always fairly close but became greatly closer during the last few years of his life, and I am forever grateful for that!
