Today would have been his 73rd birthday.

He never made it to 70. On August 8th, 2003 he died suddenly and tragically in a farming accident.

He was a smart and interesting, multi-dimensional man who loved the Lord, his family and his animals (among other things). He had many flaws which made him a struggle to live with and to love.

But, he was my dad and I loved him. I miss him. Every day. Even more so this week as I worked on this project.

P.S. The song: In honour of his humor. He loved to sing this song (with us) in an uber-twangy way with a smirk on his face.

P.S.2 Interesting that my sister had a similar idea on this, his birthday. (I was going to link to it but linking doesn't seem to be working at the moment.)

P.S.3 Siblings, I'm creating a cd for all of you made up of these photos and others from Mom's Big Box o' Photos. Be patient, it's a big job.

Thanks for that. I'm a little choked up.

That was wonderful! He was a very handsome man and it looks like he knew how to have fun with his family!

Hugs to you as you miss him!

What a tribute. I am honoured to "know" him through his children.
