Happy Birthday, Dad in Heaven: Wishes for Dad That Has Recently Passed Away
01Dear Dad, this is to say, ‘happy birthday to you.’ You would have been 81 years old today! I know you are gone, up in Heaven now, and smiling down on us.
But, I also believe that you’re here with me always, and that gives me immense comfort.

02Dear Dad, I may still feel empty and saddened by your sudden passing, but today I just wanted to say ‘happy birthday’ to you.
Today reminds me so much of all the love you gave me, and I feel so lucky.
03To my late father, the most loving, caring, and thoughtful man I’ve ever met, happy birthday today.
I would do anything to get just one last opportunity to say this to your face, but even wishes have limits. So, happy birthday, my dad in Heaven, I will love you always.
04Happy 90th birthday, Dad. You might not be here in person anymore, but I celebrate you all the same. I am still so very proud of you and always will be.
05Hey Daddy, I couldn’t get through today without acknowledging your birthday. I am still raw over your death.
So, happy birthday, Daddy. Have fun with the angels. Sing and dance—if they also do that kind of thing there—and show them what you’re made of.

06Dear Dad, I know I was never a believer, but these days, I imagine you’re in Heaven now, looking over me, protecting me as you always did.
On your birthday today, that gives me so much hope and happiness. Thanks, Dad. And, happy birthday.
