Happy 84th Birthday Dad!


Well, we had Dad's birthday party here this last Saturday. My dad is an amazingly loving, kind and devoted man and I am proud to have him for a father. Dad is a wonderful role model and was my mom's caregiver for several years before she passed away this past June 20th. He never complained once (that I know of) about caring for, who he called, "the love of his life". It is an amazing love they have for one another. True soulmates. This was another "first" for our family... Dad's first birthday without her in 62 years!!! We did pretty well though. I'm sure that Mom was smiling down from Heaven. Lots of laughs, good food, swimming and I think a good time was had by all...
