  1. Looks like this is a man who had a wonderful life filled with adventure, dedication, fun and a lot of love. Thank you for the photos you post on here I always enjoy your new posts. best wishes

    ps. my dad died when I was 3 so I never knew the love of a father.

    1. He was a good dad. Very patient with me even when I was insufferable...

  2. I'm sorry about your father passing away. But wow - 99! You are blessed to have had him so long. What wonderful pictures of your dad and his life. Thank you for posting them!

  4. May you & your family be uplifted in these painful days. While your dad lived a long & prayerfully healthy life, the pain of a loved one's passing is always difficult. Grace, peace, & prayers be with you.

  5. Sorry for you.
