Dad's birthday

My Father

The memory of my father is wrapped up in
white paper, like sandwiches taken for a day at work.

Just as a magician takes towers and rabbits
out of his hat, he drew love from his small body,

and the rivers of his hands
overflowed with good deeds.

- Yehuda Amichai

He was the glue, the hope, the laughter, the tear drier, the mood soother, the warmth giver, the strength, the tenderness. Oh, how we miss him. Happy Birthday Mike - husband, dad, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, friend. Oh, what a hole you left.

Oh Julie what a beautiful message for all of us to remember our grandparents, parents, siblings and children. Thank you.
