My dad passed away a year ago today.

billjuddy2I posted about him here and here.

There hasn’t been a single day in the past year that I haven’t wanted to talk with him.

He is the best man I have ever known, or ever will know. If you knew him, you would say the same. I am proud to be his son.

Now has come the departing time
And here you must no longer stay;
But there is no comrade of thine
That will desire you were away.

Of all good times that e’er were shared
You leave us happy memory;
And for all the friendships that e’er you had
They fondly will remember thee.

I raise to thee the parting glass
And drink a health whate’er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call,
“Good night, an’ joy be to you all.”

    It has been less than five months for me, I miss my dad so much. He was a man who no one “desired away” My mom just got back from a trip to California and is already planning a couple more, San Antonio and Canada. I hope she can build a life to be going on with.
