My Daddy

“Time passes by, people pass on

At the drop of a tear, they’re gone

Let’s do what we dare, do what we like

And love while we’re here before time passes by”

…from “Time Passes By” by Kathy Mattea.

These are a few pictures of my Dad. Eating…which he loved to do.

An old photo of me and him when I was very young.

Him and his suspenders in his chair.

His memorial flag, with me and Matt, and him holding the flag.

Navy man. Mill man. Funny man. Serious man. Man with good advice. Man I wish I could talk to for a while…one more time! Good old man!

Tomorrow will be seven years since he passed on.

Love you and Miss you Tarpie, Dad, Papa…..I won’t ever forget everything you did for me, and as long as I’m here you will be alive in my memory.
