Treasure Chest Thursday - Dad's 49th Birthday

Dad's 49th Birthday

I suppose this could have been a Wordless (nearly) Wednesday item, as well. But, I really treasure that smile, the farmer's tan, that joy of life... it was snuffed out way too soon. This was August 1964. Less than thirteen years later, he was no longer with us, due to a very complex set of cancer issues.

This is the man I remember, and will always remember. Thanks for being a part of my life, Dad!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
