Lovely post Stephanie.

This is a lovely thing to do.

That is an amazing tribute to your father. You remeber so much about him, you can tell you really loved him. Thank you for sharing this with us, I can just picture him in my head even though this is the first thing I've ever read of this man, your dad.

What a very nice way to remember you dad's birthday.

I only remember your father from our much younger days, but my fondest memory of him is when we were about 8 or 9, and he, Kay and I would play in the chicken coop behind the house...some of them are...

They made me go through the opening for the chickens because I was the smallest (that was way back then)..

How he had a dog that hung on to his pants leg and the dog would walk behind him holding on to his pants, he never had a pair that wasn't ripped....

He built a "perch" in the tree by the chicken coop, got on it and the branch immeditely broke and he fell to the ground...can't remember if he broke anything or not.

I was always the "odd man out" because he and Kay should have been sister and brother, but he put up with me, and I am so sorry I never had the opportunity to really know him in the later years.

Reading your list brought tears because I missed knowing what a great brother I had.

This is absolutely lovely Steph. I was too young when Uncle Dick passed away, but I know he was truly a special man because Mom and Grandma always got this (Mom still does) soft, happy face when they talked about him and the joy he brought to their lives. Sometimes when I look at you at just the right angle, I see Grandma, but what I'm sure I am really seeing is Uncle Dick through you, through Grandma. Does this make sense? In my mind it does and it brings me great comfort and connection to the man I don't remember. Thank you for sharing some of your most treasured memories.

What a fabulous tribute to someone who obviously meant an awful lot to you! Happy Birthday to your Dad!

Also he seems like someone that it would have been really neat to know. I am sure that is why I adore you so much *smile*

wow. how great it must have been to sit and write that and remember. he sounds fabulous.

love never never dies, it blooms in 73 ways and keeps coming!
