These are some of my favorite pictures of my Dad. He lives out in California and we try and get out there every year to see him and Mom. Mom isn’t able to travel so far anymore, so they haven’t been out our way since Erin’s wedding in 2007. I am grateful that they were able to make that trip, both for them and for Erin and me.
This is my father-in-law who passed away in 1985. He was a gentle man with a goofy sense of humor who was always smiling. He loved to camp, fish and play cards. We miss him. My kids were his youngest grandchildren, Erin was only a year old when he died. Brian was almost 3 and I don’t know how much he remembers. But they would have loved him a lot.
