I lost my Daddy Aug. 7, 2003. The worst day of my entire life. He was my rock. I was Daddy's baby. If I wanted something I went to Daddy. He was a wonderful Daddy and of course the most handsome man in the world. Some days I handle it ok others not so well. Like last night, I cried over the fact that Bub is missing out on some much with Daddy. When we decided to have a baby, I knew if it was a boy I'd name him after my daddy. And I was so happy to learn he was gonna be a boy. We picked out the name Dustin Squire. And everyone in my family and extended family knew if but Daddy. When I had him and Daddy called me in the hosp. I asked him was he coming to see his namesake. And he said, "my what?" I said, "your namesake." He said you didn't name that baby after me did you? I said of course I did! Who else would I name him after? He came straight to the hosp. to see us. He spoiled Dustin rotten. All 5 of us and the other grandkids were afraid to wake him up. He slept alot thru the day. One evening we went home and he called me and said, "that baby didn't tell me bye" I said, "Daddy you were asleep" he said, "I dont care, don't ever let him leave here without telling me bye." Dustin was the only one who could go jump on him and wake him up and Daddy start immediately playing with him. Daddy told him lots of stories and I ask him about them alot, cause i dont want him to forget them. Bub has missed out on so much with my Daddy. I feel like he was cheated out of his papaw. My nephew Darrell, who was raised with me and is my brother in my heart got to have all that and he truly appreciates it. Daddy taught him so much and he hangs on to everything that was Daddy's and he tells his kids all about papaw but they have missed out too.
