Four years ago this past May, I shared this post in honor of my father's 85th birthday. I share it with you again today in honor of my father's life, and of his recent death at the age of 89. Dad died on Saturday, September 24th, surrounded by his loving family. It has been soothing for us all to revisit and reread the words that we wrote to him four years ago. I invite you to read them again so that you can know the man that we lost.
Today, my father turns 85. One year ago, we were celebrating the fact that he had survived heart surgery and then subsequent sickness that kept him hospitalized, and terribly ill, for quite some time. It was a difficult and frightening period for everyone - but now happily - a memory. Today we celebrate that he is with us and a part of our lives every day. Please click on the names to read a few words from his family:
Happy Birthday Dad - We Love you!
