Happy Father's Day 2012


Father's Day for me is very emotional since my Dad passed away in 2004. I thought a collage would be nice and yes the little one with him is me. On days like today, I really remember all the good times with him. He had a heart condition, so we were lucky to have him as long as we did. My dad was a shoe repairmen, as you can see from one of the photos, and that was quite an art. A skill that not many have today. He would make a really run down pair of shoes look completely new. His shop was the kind people went in and socialized along with getting their shoes repaired. He is so missed by my mom and me. Being an only child, we were very close which was great. You only have one father, and if you are lucky enough to have a great one like I did, be sure to cherish them today. Spoil them like crazy. You will never regret it.

I love the collage (how dashing your dad looks in the suit and hat) and your tribute. Wonderful to have these good memories.
