My Dad was (and is) one of the greatest men, EVER! Lots of fun, kind, loving and honorable. Hardly EVER saw him without a smile on his face. He is sorely missed by ALL that knew him...and, in particular: ME.
He served in the Navy in World War II after obtaining his Mother's permission to enroll at the age of 17. I found his Naval uniform, years later, and it looked as though it would fit a twelve year old.
Daddy worked at General Motors for thirty years. He was standing in line for the job when the plant in Arlington, Texas opened. Everyone at General Motors called Daddy "Red" because of his copper red hair (before he pretty-much lost it all). What little he had left: if he could grab it and pinch it between his index finger and thumb, he would say to Mama: "I'm gettin' to be a hippie, Mama: I need a haircut!". His mother, Vadah, called him Bill as an adult and still reverted to "Billy", occasionally. He was COMPLETELY covered with FRECKLES! :)

Well, it's been five years since you've been gone, and I still can't hardly visit your memorial without tearing up. I MISS YOU something awful, Daddy. Won't forget your last words to me: "Them sure are some good sugars...". Yes, they were! Miss your l...(Read more)|
