Happy Birthday to My Dad - You are Missed


Today would have been my father's 73rd birthday, and while my childhood wasn't always the best, there are some things that I do cherish about my youth. My father gave me my love of music, reading, and photography.

My dad passed away a few years ago and there are still times I still think of him and miss some things about him. I was going through photos the other day and found this one of my dad and his older brother, it was taken just as my dad was starting to decline. It is one of the few photos of my dad and the only one of my uncle that I have.

(L-R) Uncle Raymond Sullivan and My Dad, Donald Sullivan

Wishing you were still here daddy, so that we could have worked things out and had a happier life together. Wherever you are, know that on this, your birthday, I am thinking of you and missing you.
