Day for Dads

To all the wonderful dads : happy Father's Day!

My dad passed away when I was 6 years old but my memories of him will never fade. He was lovely- fallible yet sincere. Stern yet playful.

He had cheekbones and grey eyes and a full head of hair!

He loved dogs.

And when I was 5 he saved me from drowning.

How could I forget such a man?

Charlie says: I think we'd have gotten on!



Have a sweet Sunday everyone!

Special (((hugs))) to you, Jenn. I'm fortunate to still have my dad alive, but it's only been in the past several years that I've had a good relationship with him. I consider myself very, very lucky to do so, at this time of my life. :-)

Smooches to Charlie and happy Sunday to you both.

So sad your father died when you were so little. I remember your saving from being drowned story. It's wonderful you saved memories of him and that you have a little tribute for him here. Even though it was many years ago, we never forget those we cherished.

Such a nice post... :)

It is not 'father's day' in Australia today, but strange that I was missing my dad today out of all days.

I even made a post along this line today in my personal blog here: http://mauzziemuses.blogspot.com/2010/06/but-take-your-time-think-lot-why-think.html

Hugs.

So sad that you lost your dad so young and what a hero he was saving you.

Its a day to remember all our beloved dads, the ones we have lost as well as the ones still alive and well.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

That was a lovely post to your Dad - how sad to lose him when you were a little girl.
My Dad died 10 years ago and I miss our talks and his advice so much.

I'm glad that you have a few special memories of your Dad being a Dad. I hope you and Charlie have a special day.

How tragic that he left this world when you were so young. Fathers Day must be a tough one although I'm sure you think about him every day, not just on Fathers Day. You have some amazing memories of him, I'm sure you cherish them. I think Charlie and him would have gotten on infamously. Take care x

O.K.,
Your dad sounds wonderful. I think it's better that you have such great memories of him. That way, your father will always be close to perfect.

Hi Charlie, you must love to hang out near the top of the stairs! :)

I'm so sorry you didn't have more time with your dad, but he sounds very special. I lost mine to dementia when I was in my early twenties and still miss his gentle sense of humour - he loved cats too and always got told off by my mum for sneaking treats off his plate into their waiting paws!! xx

You lost your dad so young but your memories of him are so special. I lost my Dad when I was 19...I miss him every day...sigh.

Your father sounds so special. Glad you have some lovely memories of him though you were so young when he passed away. This is SUCH a sweet tribute. The details you've chosen say it all.
