Father’s Day


It’s Father’s Day and even though my Dad is no longer here I remember him with great pride. Dad was the first man in my life and he loved me unconditionally. In later years, he would prepare a tiny drop of wine for the two of us while waiting patiently for me to “drop by” at the end of each day. I will never forget his warm smile, his hug and kiss as I came through the door. I got to watch my Dad grow old and will be forever grateful to have shared with him more than two-thirds of his almost eighty-eight years. My Dad became an orphan at ten, survived WWII, brought his family to Canada, and remained married to my mother for almost sixty-five years before leaving this world ten months after her; that’s some life! So, cherish every moment with your Dad; he’s one special man!
