So when my older sister (we'll call her The Phoenix) sent this email to me and my siblings on Father's Day, it was a nice way to remember him:
Yesterday was Father's day and it got me thinking of all the goofy things I miss about Deddy.
Deddy sat on the couch and slapped his feet together and pretended to be a walrus?
Deddy snored so loudly that no one but him got any sleep, especially when we were jammed all together in a small hotel room?
We all spent a wonderful 4th of July together, starting at the Parade and ending at the Creamery watching fireworks, with our radio blaring the music? Also, backing the gold van into the parking space, so we could leave first?
|We've always LOVED fireworks!|
Singing opera music in the shower?
Anyway, always missing him. Even though he was wacky, we all got a little bit of his wackiness. Just look at us...
|Dimples is wondering why Eisenhower, my brother, has a bowl on his head|
|Eisenhower and I doing some dancing and jumping|
|Jem the Rocker was always a rocker|
|My dad only had one quarter--we had to make the most of it!|
Or how much he loved Neil Diamond, Peter Paul and Mary and sang Sound of Music songs.
I especially liked when he would pull me and "Eisenhower" behind the bug with a sled for our paper route in the winter.

|The entire family|
Happy Father's Day!
