Father's Day - 2012

You Never

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
... In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

To the Best Dad - Happy Father's Day!

One Year - April 6

You are still upper most in our minds, each and every day.
Thanks for the wonderful memories. 

Your hands so warm
your voice so clear
I still remember your laughter
like yesterday had never gone
I miss your words of encouragement
words that kept me hanging on
now your gone
the tears keep flowing
... only hoping
that one day the pain will fade
Dad why did you have to go away
We love you and miss you
I know I will see again some day

On September 11, 1965 Jack Hoeppner married Marilyn Zacharias at the Fort Garry MB church in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  The next 45+ years would be filled with love, laughter, adventure, some heart ache, the addition of kids and the celebration of God, life and family.  This weekend we remember with a great deal of fondness those 45+ years of marriage.

Last September we as a family celebrated with a great evening out at a fabulous restaurant - the first few pictures are of that celebration.  The rest of the pictures are just fabulous memories of dad and our family.
