Happy Father’s Day!

Each of us is granted only one father and one mother.  As you honored your mother this past Mother’s Day, please do the same for your fathers today.

Below is an image of my own Dad and his cousin in 1993.  Sadly, they are both passed…my Dad on June 7, 1994, and his cousin on May 7, 1994.  That Spring was very tough for me, losing two wonderful men I loved so very much.

  1. It can be a sad thing, but I haven’t spoken to my father for over 25 years, nor will I ever speak to him again. Sad fact of life, some people just should not be parents. I have, on the other hand, always been incredibly jealous of anyone who does have that wonderful relationship. Though yours is gone, on fathers day, I know you will think of him a lot.

    • Sorry to her that, Leanne, yet I know dysfunction in my own family.. My Dad and I had a special bond…five years before his passing he told me I was his “best son” ( had 3 brothers and was the only girl).

  2. Lovely memories. I’m lucky my Dad is still here (and Mum) despite a few health scares over the years. My Dad is the eldest of thirteen and always tells everyone who’ll listen at family gatherings that his parents just kept trying to get another one as good as the first 🙂 he tells me I’m his favourite daughter – hmmm . . . the only one!
