Unconditional Love is one of the earliest pieces I wrote. My father passed away in 1996 when my daughter was 2 1/2. He was like a little child when he was playing with Em. We were living in a townhouse, end unit. The playground was right next to our unit. Grandpa Ralph would chase her around, swing her and go down the slide. It brought me such joy to watch them.
Truly, one of the best things my father left with me was the knowledge that he loved me, without reservation. Who I was at that moment was always enough. It's a great legacy to leave your children.
