What great photos, sorry that he was taken from you too soon. His personality comes through in those old photos, love the one on the bike!

Looks like the newspaper changed your father's name for him. Bwahahaha

I've never seen a birthday party annoncement like that. Was that a special perk becuase your grandfather worked for the paper?

It's interesting to see pictures of your parents when they are young. My father died at the age tha I'm at right now. I look at some of the last pictures we have of him and I always think, "boy, he sure look older than me."

I'm so sorry about your dad Dani. It's not fair when our loved ones are taken from us through illness and accidents before their time.

I'm glad you have these photos to remember him and love the one with the camera!

It's a strange feeling when you outlive your parent.

Dani said...

Thanks ThreeC. :)

Erin, I love how proud he looked riding his bike with his boy scout uniform on.

Buzz, yeah, I'm thinking it was because Grandpa Patsy worked at the paper.

I think life was much different back then, and like your Dad, it aged them quick.

Thank you Kelly.

I had a great time checking out your blog this morning! It's beautiful in your neck of the woods.

Diva, I loved seeing her picture that you had up on Mother's Day. It was beautiful, just like you.

What is Life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night
It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.

You are missed.

Old pictures are indeed the best, Dani. So sorry you lost him too soon, but there is joy in many of those memories, no?

Dani, All day today the date was catching my eye, but my brain wasn't cooperating with why it was important. Then, I came home and saw your photos, and I did a mental "doh". Thank you for sharing these memories of your dad. Love you, MFD.

I love you so much Ria. Some things come and go in life, but I always know you got my back. xoxo
