My dad went home to heaven on Monday, January 14, 2013. He was a faithful Christian and knew what awaited him. Some of his final words were that he could see my mom and she had a cup of coffee ready for him. It had been 23 years since she had fixed him a cup of coffee and he was excited! She was known for her coffee. You can read about my mom and her “coffee culture” here. As much as I miss them, I love it that they are together again. They were soul mates.
Today I hung my dad’s jacket in my Potting Shed. I love seeing it while I’m working.
And, the forsythia cuttings I took from his yard are blooming and getting leaves!!
This jacket, the forsythia and these pictures will give me much pleasure in the years to come.
Here’s a story of my dad and his sailor days…
