This is my Dad.
The "Big" Norwegian
I don't talk about my family.
(Since my Dad died, there hasn't been much connection.)
He was the glue that held us together.
He was well loved by everyone and I mean everyone.
He taught me how to love, how to be kind,
how to show others respect and consideration.
He gave great advice and
I have passed it down to my children.
He was funny.
He was quiet.
He was a war hero, Purple Heart!
He was a great host.
He was generous.
He loved people.
Dad passed away shortly after this picture was taken.
Yes, he is smiling. That was his smile!
As we celebrate Father's Day, I will be
thinking about MY dad and all that he taught me.
The way I can honor and say thank you Dad,
is to be a better me.
