Today (Friday) - 1 year ago my Father Passed away...I remember everything about it as if it was yesterday....I'm soooo thankful for the wonderful memories God has given me but wish he would help to ease the reminder of how awful my Father's last 11 days were for all of us. I know, someday ...time will help to heal. This past year has been a difficult adjustment for all of us w/out my Father....but Thank God we have each other....it's such a joy to spend time together & reminisce about all the good times we had. My Father loved to be the center of the family's attention!! He would sit at the table & cough, just to get everyone's attention..he didnt' want anyone to miss the joke he was going to tell, though I'm sure we'd heard the joke before...that was what made it even more funny!! My Father was a huge baseball junky- he could tell you every stat from the beginning of time...I always said he would be my "life line" on a game show when it came to sports trivia. Ted was a unique man when it came to his baseball teams- he loved the Yankees & Boston-yikes!!! As I got older, I got into Baseball too...it was always fun to chat w/him about it. You never knew what was coming out of Ted's mouth but you usually knew it was going to be amusing....I just figured out why my Father & my husband got along sooo well...is it a man thing?!!
Every holiday we would pose (quickly) for a family picture & every holiday Ted would complain...it got to be the family joke.....I missed him complaining this year, BUT I'm soooo thankful for all the wonderful pics we have : ) So many options to do layouts, if I could only get myself back to that : )
Ted was a big supporter of my card hobby : ) It made my day when he would take off his glasses & examine my new cards : ) This one's for you, Ted!!!
Better Late Than Never...
