Remembering My Daddy

Barry B. Anderson
March 6th, 1944 - November 5, 2006

Three years ago today, we lost my father to a very quick but courageous battle with cancer. Since he was a man of few words, I will follow his lead and keep this post pretty brief :)

He was an AMAZING father. I wish every little girl and boy could be blessed with a dad like him. He taught me so many things over the years and I treasure every single moment we had with him, up until he took his final breath to be with Jesus.

And now that prayerfully that Matt and I are embarking on the journey to be parents, we only hope we can raise our children with as much love as was given to me growing up. He set a lasting example of what it truly means to be a daddy, a husband, and a friend.

I only wish that he could be here to share in our joy of his grandbabies, but I know that my M&M's have a very special guardian angel up in Heaven. Love you, Dad, today and always.

In His Hands,

Dads are irreplaceable. I know how much you must miss yours, because I still miss mine after 17 years. I'm thinking of you today.

Meagan, hard to believe it's been three years! Barry was a wonderful man and a great friend. I can still hear them laughing! And yes, if it's possible, you know he's watching over you! Hugs!
