  1. Hello Sulekha.
    My dad too passed away. If he was alive today, he would have celebrated his birthday on April 6th. I didn't get to spend as much time with him as I would have liked since he died when I was in my teens. He didn't get to see the man I have become today, but I know he would have been proud.
    Go ahead, toast your dad because even though he is gone, his memory will always live on in your heart. Very nice tribute indeed. Thanks for sharing.

    Lovely and heartfelt. I am blessed to have my 91 year-old father living with us. Seeing him in the "rays of the sun" brought tears to my eyes. I will carry this with me. I will need the reminder one day.

    That was so touching Outlier. Sorry once again for missing his birthday. I know how much 16th April means to you. Love you

  6. Tears are coming to my eyes Sulekha because I lost two fathers, a biological one (never knew) and my adoptive father who raised me. Oddly enough I love them both even though only one made me a part of his life. This I can not explain, but a daughter's love is a mystery sometimes. What a beautiful tribute to your handsome father. I know he is super proud of you and smiling. 🙂

    Awesome words to a Dad who deserved it well. I wish I had the opportunity to meet him too… But I know he knows me now and that he blesses every step me and my Mitr take together… We are fortified in his spirit… Much love
