Molly is 30, Today.

Today, my daughter is 30.  The same age I was when she was born.

By age 30, I was married, beginning my own PI business, and scared to death about the prospect of fatherhood.  Then she arrived and made it easy

Here it is 30 years hence, and by all-that-is-holy she should have been married, and had children.  She aspired to be a veterinarian.  I never had the privilege of walking her down the aisle or holding a grandbaby.  Or proudly watching her get her degree.  Or even her diploma.

She was taken from us in 1985.  In a stupid car accident.

So she’ll always be age 12 in my heart.  Or just born.

Happy Birthday, Molly!  I Love You.

  1. I won’t pretend to know the pain of the loss you experienced, but I know two things: God can help you deal with it, and Molly’s waiting for you – you WILL see her again!

  7. If the Good Lord only grants me one request, it will not to bury one of my children.

    Sorry for your loss.

  8. I wish I had something I could say that might ease this pain, GFA.

  9. Not much I can add to this, but I know that she’d have been proud of her dad these days.

  10. Mine are all grown, and the only nightmares I have are about losing one of them. As my aging father told me, you never stop being a parent.

    God bless you Guff.

  11. ” I know she wants me to live life and be happy, though, so I try to do that.”

    Exactly, and I’m glad you have done so.

    My daughter would be 40 this spring. She went to be an angel at four months… I still miss her, but I never let that loss dominate my life.

    Bless you.

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
