Memories on Monday



Memories on Monday came from reading Jan's Place and JAM's blogs. What a neat idea. I got today's idea from reading Pony Girl's Saturday entry who's dad celebrated a birthday, JAM's Monday entry who's dad drove them to a memorable concert and Don't Make Me Get My Monkey's post who just lost her father. So much talk about dads... So, since I lost Daddy suddenly due to a heart attack February 13, 2008, I thought maybe it is time to post about him. I am just going to upload some photos. It is easier that way. The next to the last photo is during the last days that I shared with him...he and Mom spent the Christmas holiday with us. His photos showed such happiness which was odd, as he wasn't feeling well at all and seemed down. I love the cross that I had done at the florist for his funeral...He is with Jesus and in Heaven. I like to think he is having fun with his deceased loved ones. I especially like to think he and Uncle Beanie are have a great time walking in the woods as they loved to spend time together when we visited Vermont. May God rest his beautiful soul.

Such a handsome man, and you are right, he does look very happy in the last photo you took of him. Sometimes I think they know a lot more than they let on at the end of life.

Oh my, what a beautiful post and lovely tribute to your dad. I'm so sorry for your loss. It is never easy when we lose someone we love so much. The picture of when your dad was a baby is priceless!

Thanks so much for sharing your memories of your dad with us!

I so feel for you, losing your Dad! He looks such a lovely man, if you have had a special relationship with your Dad, there is nothing better! I miss mine too, but he died in 1986, he was such a good man and adored my Mother, I was his only child.
