October 12th

Today would be my Dad's 66th birthday. I miss him so much. My kids miss their Grandpa too. We don't have nearly enough pictures of my Dad, he was not fond of the camera... :o) But I wanted to share a few pictures of him with my kids...

This is when the trio were just a few months old, January of 1998. That's Elizabeth, David (with the darkest hair) and then little Anna... I loved how he could hold all three of them at once. :o)

This is my Mom and Dad, at our apartment, Christmas 2003. The trio would have been 6 years old here. Once again, Elizabeth, David, then Anna...


And here is Grandpa and Grandma with Jimmy, January 2007. Jimmy was just a week old here. Dad passed away before Jimmy turned one, so this is one of the very few pictures of Grandpa with Jimmy.

I love you, Dad. Happy Birthday. I miss you desperately. I am glad my kids knew how much you loved them.
