I’ve always loved Dad’s strong hugs and how he would give me a (scratchy!) kiss on the cheek when we came to visit. And how he always wanted to make sure we got plenty of whatever favorite dish Mom had prepared for lunch or dinner. And how he always stood outside smiling and waving goodbye as we backed out of his driveway. I miss him so much.
I’ll always remember our summer vacations up north at the family cabin. It seemed no matter how early I stumbled into the kitchen for my morning coffee, Dad would already be out on the dock fishing for bluegills or maybe something bigger 🙂 I would join him and he’d tell his favorite stories – especially in later years. Many times I’d heard them before, but that didn’t matter. I’d love to hear him tell them again.
