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.
