Bye Daddy


This is a picture of my Dad surrounded by some of his grandchildren and most of his great-grandchildren. He was so proud them.....he would light up whenever they were around. He went home to his final reward yesterday and while I am happy for him, I'm very sad for those of us who loved him....he will be sorely missed.
