“I am a continuation like the rain is the continuation of the cloud.”
Today would have been dad's 90th birthday. It's the first birthday we've spent without him. Needless to say, we are all missing him, but reminding each other to be grateful for the time we did have together. Our multi-gen home and lifestyle gave us a tremendous amount of bonus moments to spend with him.
Dad had a great sense of humor and enjoyed making us laugh. You certainly get that in this photo of him wearing a new scarf and headband, Christmas gifts for our niece. It still makes me laugh. There are so many happy memories to recall, and that's how we choose to mark this day, in celebration. Happy Birthday, dad.
