Happy Father's Day..
in pictures..

My dad..1942..shortly before marrying my mom on June 12,1942

my parents and me..1946
My dad..
my dad and i in Maryland..
my dad and i fishing.. a favorite shared pasttime..

"I recall the day I took you on a fishin' trip,

You said: "Daddy won't that hook hurt the fishes' lip?"

And you said if they don't get air, those things in the can will die.
So we turned the worms all loose and chased some butterflies"

the last photo made with daddy and my siblings all together..
his 75th birthday..
where daddy lies now .. 
next to mom again..
there is a daddy sized hole in my heart..
i miss and love him very much


  1. You about made me want to cry. I'm so thankful my daddy is still here with me. I Love the photo of you and he in the boat!

  2. The pictures (especially the overalls) reminded me of my Dad! Sweet memories captured in pictures!

  3. I know exactly how you daddy sized hole seems to never go away.....

  4. I'd never heard it put that way -- a Daddy sized hole -- but it sure is accurate. And mine wore overalls all the time, too.

  5. Beautiful tribute and sweet memories, Loui. I'm sure it made him smile down on you from Heaven.

  6. What a lovely post to remember your dad. They call them "the greatest generation" and I would have to agree.


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
