I wish my kids have a chance to know my dad. Every time (almost) we visit Vancouver, I take them to visit my dad and I tell them little stories about him. I also try to explain to Kira why he is not with us anymore. It's a difficult task. She doesn't really understand the concept of permanence. She thinks there must be a way I can fix this.
On the other hand, it brings me so much joy when I see little bits of my dad in my kids. I think Hayden has my dad's hands and his concentration and problem solving ability and Kira has his gentleness and maybe his face shape. I guess this is why people say you live through your children.
