My dad, Charles Alvin Tobias, is and was an amazing father. He loved to cook and work in his flower gardens. My dad was always my protector, my advisor and the strength that my life is built upon. My life will never be the same without him by my side! I will never forget the moment his heart stopped beating and mine continued. I am just so sorry that I couldn’t have saved him that day. Living each day without him breaks my heart. Nothing will ever be the same. Dad, I miss you so very much that even the thought of you makes me cry. Our time together was cut short but I hope you know how very proud and honored I am to be called your daughter. The only comfort I get is from the GIFT of LIFE knowing that you continue to live through others.
I had asked GOD for a sign that my dad was OK. Shortly after that I started seeing Butterflies everywhere I looked. That is why my quilt square is of a butterfly.
