HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!

My father passed away in 2001. Today he would have been 78 years old. My Dad was a wonderful man. He was a great father to all his children and just an all round great guy. He never met a person who wasn't his friend. I like to think I take after him in that aspect. My father worked 3 jobs so that my mother could stay home and raise the children. If anyone needed help with anything, my father was there. I can't tell you how many relatives he moved ( to 3rd floor tenements even). I was somewhat close to my Mom but I was even closer to my Dad. I really miss him. And once again, the computer won't let me scan pictures in to share. I will, someday, manage to share photos of my wonderful parents with you all. Happy Birthday, Dad. You are loved and very much missed.

Bonnie, this is a very nice tribute to your Dad. I too was a "Daddy's Girl". My Dad was born in 1908 and would have been 100 this past April. He was such a good man and the best Dad!
