My dad could do anything. He eeked out a living for 8 children on a dusty/dry farm. He also drove a schoolbus, was a great carpenter, could fix your car, repair your lawnmower, raise crops, milk cows, and play the fiddle. I never saw him pick up an instrument that he could not play. He was an artist also, mostly quick sketches, he didn't have time for much more. He loved it when any of the grandchildren came for a visit and was sad after they left. He was a good man with a kind heart. Whenever I repair something successfully I like to think that he was looking over my shoulder guiding me. I miss him dearly.

My Dad loved animals. We always had cats. They would follow him when he headed to the barn to milk the cows. He would squirt milk in their mouths. His beloved "Tom" was a great comfort to him.|
