My Daddy and Me


My handsome daddy as a teen.

Daddy holding me.

Daddy giving me a horsey ride.

Me in my Daddy's boots.

Me pretending to play my Daddy's COOL guitar.

At my Great-Grandma's house when
I was a teen.

After I graduated.
Still holding me, at 21!


Singing, Thy Word is a Lamp unto my Feet
by Amy Grant at my maternal
Grandmother's birthday party.

Still holding me, last November, when I was 40.
(I asked him if he was glad that I don't
weigh 250 pounds now that I'm grown.)

At my house, celebrating
his last birthday, 70 years.

I love him.

I miss him.

I didn't have the ability to appreciate 
him enough while he was here.

I'm glad he is in heaven with my Jesus and
singing in the Amazing Choir!
