Daddy’s Little Girl… Always

daddy's little girl 2My Dad suffered a heart attack and passed away a few weeks before my wedding day. Devastated, I was ready to delay everything, but after talking with my Mom and the rest of family, they convinced me to go ahead. “He would have wanted it that way,” they all said.

Daddy had given me a Thumbie charm with his fingerprint on my 21st birthday, engraved: DLG…Always. Daddy’s Little Girl is what he called me all the time. I pinned that charm to the inside of my dress and walked down the aisle–smiling. I knew he walked with me!!
