Dear Dad, Letter 01…

Dear Dad,

You’ve been gone since March 23, 2014. Sometimes I am in disbelief that during our last conversation you were in so much pain from the chemotherapy. It’s been a little over two months since you went to Heaven, but I still think about you everyday. I am picking up a puppy (yellow lab) I purchased this Friday. She is 8 weeks-old. Her name is Izza, in tribute to Coach Izzo. You would have loved her, she is so docile. The summer has been beautiful here in Michigan thus far. I am sure you would have enjoyed many walks and bike rides by now. I just wanted to say hi, I miss you, and know you are smiling down on all of us from Heaven.

Your Son

Here is a pic of her from last week:
