Remembering My Dad

We spent the past week at my brother's house. My sisters, & nieces, my DH & sister's husband all gather at Linda & Dave's, peaceful home on the lake.
I thought about posting family photos that I took while there, but nothing seemed right but to remember my Dad. I probably spent more time in actual conversations with him in the past few years than I ever did growing up. He would call me every Sunday & we would talk for over an hour each time.

He worked his whole life, & when he took time off he fished. I remember days in the boat or canoe on the lake. I miss those days.
The Muskegon Chronicle published an article about him.
I miss you Daddy.

So sorry for your loss my friend. Love and prayers to you all. Remember the memories and good times with him as you adjust to a "new" normal. So thankful he never had to go thru chemo and such! Love ya, Deb C.

I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. I was also surprised. I know he had cancer but it seems kind of sudden. I'm so glad that you got to spend some time with him recently. Sending love to you, Warren and your family.
