Father's Day

My dad passed away 20 years ago, and my father-in-law has been gone over 30 years. They never met each other, but I know they would have been friends if they had been given the chance. They shared so many traits. Both knew the satisfaction of finishing a day of hard work. Both were strong, quiet, and honest. Neither of them ever met a stranger. Neither of them passed up the opportunity to quietly help a neighbor, without looking for credit or thanks.

Good guys - and sorely missed after all of these years! Happy Father's Day!

  1. Awwww . . an look at little baby Sara - 1954! Really a nice rememberance. Thinking of my dad today, too, who died ON Father's Day, 1997. His creativity and sense of humor live on in me and Jim.
