Dad’s not here, but he lives on in many of us.

1970PromotionIt’s my first Father’s Day without Dad.

It was difficult for me to transition from the feeling of loss to find the strength he blessed me with. In memory of Dad, I’m sharing a picture of us at a promotion ceremony from either 1969 or 1970. My two brother’s are there with my Mom, my Dad’s brother and his parents. My Dad’s hand gently rests on my shoulder. I still feel him guiding me through life. He was fun, honorable and continues to live on in the many people who knew him.

Here’s to all the great father’s who have shaped us, guided us and demonstrated how to live a good life. Honored.
