HAPPY FATHER'S DAY




THESE ARE PHOTO'S OF MY FATHER ..ONE IN HIS NAVY UNIFORM AT THE BEGINNING OF WWII AND ONE OF HIM AND MY MOTHER WITH MY TWIN SISTER,JAN,AND ME. MY FATHER WAS THE MAN WHO ALL MY BOYFRIENDS WERE MEASURED AGAINST..MY FATHER WAS A MAN OF GREAT WISDOM,HUMOR AND HUMILITY.HE WAS VERY EASY GOING AND THE ULTIMATE FAMILY MAN.MY MOM USED TO SAY THAT IF MY SISTER OR I WOULD HAVE POINTED TO A STAR IN THE SKY AND SAID "DADDY,COULD I HAVE THAT ONE?" HE WOULD HAVE HUNTED DOWN THE TALLEST LADDER HE COULD FIND! NO MATTER WHATEVER HAPPENED IN MY LIFE,I KNEW HE WOULD BE THERE FOR ME. HIS GREATEST JOY WAS HIS FAMILY. HE ALWAYS WORE OLD SPICE AFTERSHAVE....I CAN SMELL IT NOW!! I MOVED IN WITH HIM FOR THE LAST 5 MOS. OF HIS LIFE TO CARE FOR HIM IN HIS HOME SO HE COULD DIE HIS WAY..HE MET MY MOTHER IN HEAVEN ON DEC.26,2004. HAPPY FATHERS DAY DADDY...I KNOW THAT YOU, MOM AND JAN WILL HAVE A GOOD DAY IN HEAVEN..STOP IN AND VISIT ME!!
