Happy Birthday, DADDY...

If my father were living, he'd be 85 today.

Here are some old pictures that I'm glad we have....





I was talking to my mom this afternoon and she said that he always helped her not only see the best in everything, but the funny in everything.

What a treasure he was.

(He died three and a half years ago.)

He was a "Micah 6:8 Man" for sure....

Micah 6:8  
“He has showed you, O man, what is good.
 And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”


Happy Birthday, DADDY!

What a kind man he was! I am glad I got to know him. And sing "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" with him (and you, Laura, and my mom) in the horse-drawn carriage at White Haven. What a wonderful weekend!

Thank you!!!

Nancy, he is very handsome too! His eyes are kind and friendly.

Nancy said...

Thanks, Maria. I think his eyes were kind and friendly, too.... because HE was kind and friendly.

(Thanks for noticing.)

Beautiful post, Nancy. I always thought you looked so much like your mother, until I saw these photos -- now I'm not so sure. You look an awful lot like your daddy too. I think I would have liked to know him.
