Father’s Day

Father's Day

Ahhhhh what memories we have of our fathers:

 

How he laughed

How he told a joke

His smell

The spark in his eye that made you know he was on the brink of anger

His patience

His lap

The feel of holding his hand

His singing voice

His good night hug

His lessons in a sport or skill

His sad look when someone close died

His tenderness for you

His tales of his youth

His fear of growing old

His last look

 

This is for us all to feel that special bond with our father and to relish the memory once he has passed away.

 

My dear Daddy died at the age of 94 in 1996.  I miss him every day.

 

Lillian is a midwestern mother of five grown children and a grandmother of ten.
