My Dad’s 84th Birthday – Wish He Was Here to Celebrate It!

Today… is my Dad’s 84th Birthday… his 15th in Heaven! ~~*~~ ~~*~~   I am thankful that on this day 84 years ago, one of the best men ever was born.

He never had the joy of meeting any of the great-grandchildren, nor have they…

Be Yourself – NOT Someone Else – August 13 Inspiration

Remembering My Dad on What Would Have Been His 83rd Birthday – March 15

Remembering My Dad on What Would Have Been His 83rd Birthday – March 15

I am thankful that on this day 83 years ago, one of the best men ever was born. He grew up to serve his country in the army, to get married and to raise 4 kids, to become grandfather to 11, and great-grandfather to 7 (so far), although he never had the joy of meeting any of them, since lymphoma stole him much too soon 14 years ago this September, at the age of 69.   At all times, he…
