Happy Flag Day....Happy Birthday...
To My Dad!
Today would have been my Dad's 84th birthday. He passed away suddenly of a heart attack while at work back in 1981, he was only 57.
I can't help but wonder how different mine and my childrens life would have been had he lived to be a part of it.
My Dad had his faults, and his temper, but he had mellowed so by the time I grew up and got married and we were just starting to become so very close, when I got that fateful phone call in the middle of the night.
Time has healed the wounds, but I don't think I ever got over the shock of how quickly one of our loved ones can be taken away from us, and without warning.
I know he would have been so very proud of his Grandchildren, and would have been a big part of their lives.
Happy Flag Day and Happy Birthday Dad, and thank you for your time serving our country!
I miss you.
