A Birthday in Heaven

Updated on December 9, 2012

A Birthday in Heaven

My dad's birthday is in the beginning of March. Sadly, I won't get to hug him and wish him a great birthday. There will be no silly birthday hats for him to wear. No candles to blow out. My dad, the greatest dad who ever lived, is celebrating his birthday in Heaven.

I absolutely adore this man. I miss him every single day. I think about him several times throughout the day even though it has been many years since he went on to Heaven. He was wonderful and I was very blessed as a child. I had the dad everyone dreams about.

I hope they have the best birthday celebrations in Heaven. I am sure they do. After all, who deserves a better birthday than our favorite angels? And where better to have the most wonderful birthday ever than in Heaven?

For those of you missing someone on their birthday, I understand. I may not have walked in your shoes, but I understand the hurt. Just remember, you are doing the most wonderful thing you can do by remembering!

My Dad

Anyone who knows me knows that my dad's death had a huge impact on my life. I miss him so completely. I cherish the memories he left with me. In his eyes I was the most beautiful, smart and wonderful girl to walk the earth. That is how he made me feel.

I am so happy my daughters can say that they had the best grandpa ever. In fact, when he passed away, he had a "to-do list" that had one item on it: "take the grrrrrs fishing". He called my daughters the grrrs. :) Sadly, he never took them fishing. But he did spoil them rotten and they knew that he loved them.

From Here to Heaven Greeting Cards

From Here to Heaven Greeting Cards is a labor of love.

In the past, I went to the store to find a card to leave at my fathers grave. I would have to read through the many cards for people that are living and find something that would work. I always wished that there were cards for those who have gone on to Heaven. After all, we still love them. They are still a part of our life.

Finally, I decided that I should make a card line for those of us who love and miss someone who has passed away. That is most of us, right? I planned this for the last few years. I found one artist...then another. I now have the perfect artist who is busy creating beautiful designs for my cards. I hope you like them.

Cards for the Deceased

Birthday Memorial Candles

What a great tradition to start now! Burn memorial candles on the one you love's birthday. A great way to think about that special person and show love even though they are not here physically.

Have a special place in the home with pictures and momentos? This would fit right in.

      Today would have been Daddy's 84th birthday. He was only here on Earth for 42 of them, and I only got to have him for 12. Even tho he's been gone for 41 years, I still miss him daily, and some days even more than usual - like today, his birthday.

      Happy birthday in Heaven Daddy... with all my love ~~ your little girl

      I lost my dad in February this year. It was quite sudden. He had a stroke in October last year but seemed to be getting passed it and getting better. But I think he was tired, and he must have felt the time was right to go join my mum who we lost 5 years ago. It is his birthday on 8th June. I miss him every day. I get some comfort that he is back with my mum but the pain is still very raw. I used to call every morning with a paper and every night to do his tablets. I still go round to do the curtains whilst the house is up for sale, and still go in shouting Hiya Pop only me. I used to feel mom close to me when I lost her, but somehow don't get the same feelings with dad. Perhaps its because he is a Man!!!! He certainly never found his sensitive side, bless him. Anyway. Happy birthday pop. I love you and miss you all the world and all the marshmallow cakes. Big Kiss for Mom as well. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
