Well, my wedding day is nine days away. A lot of people never thought I would get to this point, but I think you knew I was just waiting for the right guy. I wish you would have known him. You would have loved him, and I think you would have been his favorite in the family. Grandma currently holds that position.
I always wanted it to be you to walk me down the aisle. You were the only father figure I had. I’m not mad, or disappointed. It was your time to go, and I know you’re at peace now. I never told you about this because I never wanted you to hang in there just for me. I know you’ll be there anyway.
I just wanted to say that it’s a hectic time right now, but you’re in my heart. Oh, and give Mom strength. She’s getting more neurotic than usual.

I don’t know who this person is, I don’t know when they wrote this or how it got on the internet, but i want to thank them [and Sarah for showing it to me]. I know exactly how they feel, except my wedding is 335 days away, not 9. And i could only image how i’m going to feel when my wedding is only 9 days away.
