Happy Birthday Daddy!

Okay - So today would have been my dad's birthday...It's one of those days that pops into your mind everytime you look down at the date and makes you sad and happy all at the same time - Sad, obviously because he's not here and that REALLY REALLY SUCKS but happy because I must say that anyone that knew my dad knows I had the COOLEST DAD in town by far! Sorry gals - your dads are all cool!
Charles Edward Davis, Sr. had an incredible life - He was a faithful follower of Christ, an amazing husband, kick ass dad and a friend's friend!
He went on over FORTY cruises - Sailed his own boat from here to the Bahamas (with family in tow) and sailed around for six weeks. He was Dr. Don Duval for my VBS, went to every play, choir, and bring your dad to school day I ever had! He was THE MAN at ZTA parent's weekend ~ My friends lived with us, called upon us and hung out with us - I was blessed to have known this man much less to be raised by him - to be in his presence was always fun and upbeat - The love he had was overflowing - The lessons he taught me have been invaluable in my work and life!

I praise God everyday for the dad I had and cry to him about the short period of time I got to spend with him but I wouldn't have wanted 50 years with another dad because we packed more into 25 years than most in a lifetime!!!
Happy would have been 78th Birthday my sweet sweet Daddy!

I love you sweet girl, I'm so thankful that you have so many fond memories to call on, on days such as these. What a blessed Daddy he was to have someone love him the way you did.
