Happy Birthday Dad!
(His name is Raymond)
My dad is 89 today and I love him so much.
These would both be in the very early 40's.
Maybe 1955! (I'm the little one)
Ray and Dorothy
1972 - My Wedding
He is one of the most giving people I know. He worked hard to give us a wonderful life growing up. I wish we lived closer, it's so hard not living nearby him but we talk almost daily.(sometimes several times a day!) My mom passed away in 1982 and nine months later my husband had left me. I have to be honest with you, I had no clue how lonely he was after my mother died until Mark had left me. Talk about putting yourself in someone else's shoes. I learned a lot from that, that's how our lives get changed and we learn about compassion. My father and I have been best friends ever since. Hopefully I will get to visit with him this summer even though it is unbearable in Florida this time of year. I have to soak up as much time as I can with him!
