Fathers Day Weekend!

Happy Fathers Day!
The photo's that I am posting today were shot on November 28th, 1997. This was my nephews first fishing trip and would be my Fathers last. Dad would pass away exactly 2 months later. Dad is wearing the blue tee-shirt and my uncle is wearing the flannel jacket. Ted is the little guy!
As I look at these photo's I'm reminded of what's really important in life. It's the moments that we spend with our loved one's that really matter at the end of the day. Life is so very short; we need to make the most of every day that we're given!
I wish my dad were still here so I could give him a big hug and kiss tomorrow, but I have memories that will last a lifetime!
So, to all the dads out there, you may not know it now, but the imprint you leave on your childrens lives will stay with them even after you leave this world!
To everyone else: Hug your dad today! If, like me, your dad isn't here anymore, then find someone elses dad and give them a hug!


  1. Tina........My dad passed away in 2002 at age 86. He attended USC in the late 30's and we grew up in a house festooned with SC's colors, cardinal and gold. He said he wouldn't pass on 'till SC won the National Championship again. 12 days after the Trojans won the title, my dad was gone. The USC fight song begins with, "Fight on....." He did. I love you, Dad!

  2. Hi Jay ~
    That's a great story! Your dad lived a long life! That's wonderful, but you know, it's never long enough, is it?
    It doesn't matter how much time goes by...we never stop missing them!

  3. Thanks for sharing a precious moment in your life with all of us. I only wish my kids could give their dad a call tomorrow.

  4. Hi Kevin ~
    I hope your Fathers Day wish comes true!
