Just a Few Memories

Trips to Save On Drug store for an ice cream cone
Drive in movies
Bike rides in the early evenings
Hugs
Teaching me how to color and ride a bike
Decorating for Christmas
Patience
Swimming with me even though he never learned how
Letting my cousin Vickie and I fill up the area he was making into a family room with water and use it for a pool
Fourth of July
Talking, Talking and Talking
Unconditional Love


My Dad and me on my first birthday!
I miss him everyday!

I am very blessed that I had such a wonderful father!

My girls too are blessed with a wonderful father!

Happy Father's Day to all the Great Dads!
