Happy Father's Day, Daddy

Happy Father's Day to my daddy. Some earlier pics; 1. as a young man; 2. with me at my wedding, 3. a few years ago when he was healthy, 4. currently in a nursing facility with dementia, he is pictured with his sweet aide, Miranda.

Let us cherish the good days while they are here, and be on our knees in thanks each and every day.

Hi Melissa,
What a nice tribute to Dad. My heart goes out to you. My dad had to spend the final 9 months of his life in a nursing facility. He passed away in August 2008 and there isn't a day that I don't miss him.
Your dad looks very happy with his aide. That's a blessing.

My Step-Dad was my hero. My own father was such a failure at fatherhood. You are so lucky to still have your Dad!
Hugs, Kathleen
