Memories of Dad

Tonight, I did my tribute to my Dad. For those who don't know, my dad passed away when I was five. He served in World War II in the Navy. I finally got a shadowbox to show the flag from his casket, his medals and a picture of him. It made me sad, proud and renewed my feelings that he has always been with me.

The rest is behind a cut. Lots of pics of Dad, me as a young child, relatives, and Dad's medals

Did I mention my dad was a Hottie? *laugh* Michael inherited his cleft chin.

Dad smirk

Dad serious

The dad I remember

Great colorized pic

My dad did HIS OWN IRONING. Can you believe it?

Dad's parents - can you believe they produced a son that much taller than either of them? I'm honestly SCARED of how tall Michael will be. The growth predicters say by the age of 18 he'll be 6'7". Should I start pushing the basketball now?

Dad and his sister, my Aunt Margaret

Is it just me, or does the guy on the end look like Anthony Michael Hall back in the 80s? *laugh* That's dad on the left.

Me and Dad

Mom, me and Dad

Me and my second cousin, Sara:

My half-brother, Rick, as a kid. Keep in mind, he's actually about 20 years older than me.

Rick following in the family Navy tradition

My other half-brother, Larry, as a kid. Unfortunately, Larry is no longer with us.

My grandmother was always SO well put together. Dressed to the nines, very proper, hair always done and full makeup. It's how I'll always remember her.

My cousin, Dale
