My dad was a wonderful man! He married my mother when us kids (four of us) were just little. Years later my little sister was born. I remember when he found out that mom and him were going to have a baby... he ran through the back yard... jumping up high and clicking his heels together. Funniest site ever! lol I also remember after he got ill with cancer. First time ever and only time I ever seen him cry. He stood looking out the window watching my little sister get on the bus to leave for school... crying... wondering if this would be the last time he saw her leave for school.
My dad worked hard and loved his family! He worked at work and then came home and shoed horses in his blacksmith shop. I remember once bugging him to let me ride this horse he had just put shoes on. He told me he didn't think that would be a good idea. I just kept bugging till he finally helped me up on the horse. That horse took off fast across the field... me screaming my head off... dad just laughing! lol
My dad made our home a wonderful place to live! Bought a big house that looked a dump and made it into a mansion! He was a wonderful dad!! Please help me to remember my wonderful dad!
Special thanks to sparkysgrl for sponsoring my dad's page.
