Sentimental Sunday... Happy Father's Day Hero

I made a collage of some of the impacting moments of the Hero's life.  The first child, the first son, a son achieving Eagle Scout, the first grandchild, the daughter he saved her and her child and got to celebrate the first birthday with, his favorite dog, and of course... me.  The only disappointing thing was the only picture of the entire group together was at his funeral.  We all miss him terribly, but are so glad he was the father he was.  He would fly 2000 miles to see a granddaughter baptized.  Sit in the hospital with a child who was close to death.  He loved to hold them and more than anything else wanted to see them achieve what they could be and be happy.
God was good to our family.  Happy Father's Day Hero!


  1. Dad's are Heroes, thanks for telling about yours. I attended a 90th birthday party recently. There was a slideshow of her life and family. Everyone commented it was better to watch it with her, than at her funeral.

  2. He sounded like such a wonderful person...
