    He died of a heat stroke 31 years ago today! So be careful and drink lots of water and look for shade! Sad but I've lived longer without him than I did with him.

    I know how it feels. Today is my Mom's birthday and the 4th without her isn't the same. She's been gone for 7 years now, but I still miss her every day.

    {{{Hugs}}} It is hardest to be without them on the special days.
    Thanks for the gentle reminder to take care of what you have while you still have it.

    Isn't it great to remember them when they were young, strong and knew everything in the world. I treasure pictures of my Dad at that age. it's such a difference from their later years with all their medical problems.
    Thanks for the memories!

    Thanks everyone! I love this picture of my Dad, I thought he was so handsome! Me however, looks like I have a fresh "Toni Home Perm" (I still have nightmares about those) and have been in Mom's lipstick! I still remember that day and how glad I was to have Daddy home. He worked construction and was gone for long stretches at a time.

    What a handsome father and I wish you could have known him so much longer! Love old pictures like that-they look like the "good old days".

    My husband died at age 35 of a heart defect. Our son was 2 yrs., 5 months old. Unfortunately, he doesn't remember his dad, and I don't have very many pictures, because he was the one who took the pictures. I'm glad you had some time with your dad that you are able to remember. I'm sorry it wasn't more. Great picture!

    Thank you for sharing such a precious memory. And yes, you look like you had the same Toni home perm I did back in the day! I lost my loving Dad Sept 19 after a 5 year struggle with a rare form of leukemia. Father's Day was very difficult and with their anniversary coming up July 20 (54 years), it is really. All I can say is "thanks for the memories".

    God Bless you and your family, Cherie

    My parents died 11 months apart. At the time I was 60 and felt like an orphan. This was 15 years ago and I still miss them both. However, I have good memories and often talk to them when alone in my quilting room. Dad's mother was a quilter and piqued my interest in quilting when I was about 8. I have said to my mother's sister (92), I wish Mom could see my quilts. She would be proud, I think.

    My dad passed away July 30, 2010. He's really on my mind right now. I know I was truely blessed though for Daddy lived to be 82.

    Aaaah what a sad story. Thank you for reminding and caring for all of us so this does not happen to others. What a handsome man. I am so sorry to hear about your loss.

    I lost my grandmother on July 4th 25 years ago. I was pregnant with my son. I think of her when I'm watching the fireworks each year.
