Happy birthday dad

Today is my dad's birthday, and how I wish he were still here to celebrate with us! He was diabetic, so we always had angel food cake for family celebrations, which he and mom both loved. And, with his birthday smack dab in the middle of summer, we always had watermelon too, which he and mom both loved.

This was a big one - his 65th in 1994. We could have had some big, special birthday bash for such a big day, but there was nothing dad liked better than simply spending time with his grandchildren. Kevin was 6, Jessica was 8, and they loved to help grandpa blow out the candles on his cake. A local park was the perfect setting for a small family picnic.

We're thinking about you today, but then, we do that every day. We miss you so much! And are thankful for you. Happy birthday dad!
