Reflections - on Dad

It has been seven years since my Dad passed, and I reflect on his life, I share two pictures of him. The first was taken on his ninetieth birthday and the second about three months later.

What terrific captures and your Dad's appearance in the photos look much younger than a man in his 90s! Wonderful post for the day, Lew, as always! Enjoy!

My dad lived to 100+6 months so I have some treasures like these 2 shots. It is so wonderful that you had him there with you for so many years. The pictures show him to be a happy daddy. Genie

I miss him so much. I miss how that house smelled. He was a good man. He was always so humble. When I think about him he really was a great example to grow up with.
