I Love you Dad as We Remember Your Birthday....

Today we would have had a glorious birthday celebration for today my father was born 84 years ago. Sadly my father passed away almost 4 years ago but it is a quiet celebration in my heart today and I love him and all the lovely memories we all hold.

This is a cake I baked for my office for all their support when he passed away. Today I want to share that cake that reads "Thank You" and I want to silently tell my father on his birthday..."Thank You" and I love you...we all love you.

Here are a couple of pictures that are dear to me. My father loved to play the accordian and I started lessons at an early age. Here we play a duet together....

This picture was taken on my parents 50th wedding anniversary and my sons Geoff and Richard are in it also. My father was so proud of my boys and of all his little family and we are so proud of him. In this picture we had arranged a surprise afternoon for them with many of their friends at a lovely restaurant. The picture isn't that clear because I didn't have a digital at that time and this picture was taken of the picture in the frame.

Happy Birthday Dad, poppa.....We cherish you on this day.

This is a good day to cherish or remember someone special in your heart too.... Judi xoxo

Hi Judi
I enjoyed hearing about your lovely Dad and seeing all your great photos. I lost my Dad 3 years ago and it doesn't get any easier does it? Thinking of you today as you remember him and his special day.
