Senior goodbye: Destiny Parker-Wilson

Destiny Parker-Wilson

Dear Daddy,

Where should I start? I just wish I could see the smile across your face right now. I finally fulfilled many things that I promised you. Knowing that I have made you proud gets me so excited. I plan on continuing to brighten your smile for the rest of my life. Literally everything I do is for you. The moment God took you away, I dedicated every goal of mine to make you happy. I am so grateful that we got to spend many times together. I thank God every day for putting a human being like you in my life to look over and protect me. I have learned many inspirational lessons and tactics from you and I have decided to apply them to my daily routine. Although I am extremely upset that you are not here physically, mentally I know you are going to continue watching over and protecting me forever. Words aren’t enough to express my feelings towards you. I can’t wait to begin this new chapter of life and see what is in store for me.

I wish I could express my happiness with the biggest hug from you right now. An embrace from you would be more meaningful than any compliment, from anyone in the world. Everything got pretty hard after you left. My days became longer and harder to get through because I think about you constantly. There were 1,000 times where I just wanted to call it quits and give up on everything and everyone. However, I didn’t let the worst get the best of me, just as you taught me. I turned my anger and frustration into determination. I set high standards for myself as a distraction from everything trying to tear me down. I just had to realize that things had to get worse before they got better and I’m happy everything is working out in my favor.

I wish you could see your amazing creation as I blossom into a young lady. Death changes everything, time changes nothing. This is just the end to my old chapter and a beginning of the new one. Tears are streaming down my face as I am writing this letter but I just want to finish it off by saying that I love and miss you dearly. Please continue to protect me as I aim for the sky. Forever going forward, I promise you that I will keep myself on track and become the successful young leader you always wanted your daughter to be.
