      Dad, I'm sorry that we never got a chance to hang out other than the 2 times that I met you. I regret that we lost touch after only a few years of writing one another. I will miss you so much even though I never really knew you. I'm glad that you at least got to meet your granddaughter once, but it should have been a lot more than just once. I hate that I wasn't there for you when you needed someone to look after you. I will always live with that regret. I appreciate your neighbors Carla and TJ so much for doing what they could for you and Susan as well. I'm glad that you did have people to help you, I just wished that it could have been me. I felt like somewhat of an outcast at your memorial on Saturday. Surrounded by all of these people who knew you, adored you and loved you. I only wished that I too could have known you. We would have gotten along so well together. We both have such a great love for music and cats. My mother always told me that I am a lot like you. If only we got to know one another the way we should have. I cried when I looked through your family photo album and found pictures of me growing up and of my family and your granddaughter. That was comforting. I love you dad and I will miss you.
