Yesterday makes 5 years since dad has been gone. I sure do miss his down-to-earth attitude about most things. If only more people had his level of integrity; the world would be a better place.

Missing your stories and laughter, Dad!

Tomorrow is Dad's 89th birthday. Lately I've been remembering the times that Dad helped me out on my various home repair projects after he retired.

Neither of us had much carpentry experience yet he was there for me when I replaced the center beam under my house on a cold day in January in 1981. He assisted me for nearly 18 hours through what was the most dangerous and tiring day of my life.

A year and a half later we spent 4 - 15 hour days over a 10 day period removing the old siding and putting up new plywood sheathing on that same house. Each of the 4 days we took only one break at midday for about 30 minutes and consumed many cheeseburgers. He also had a 45 minute drive at each end of those long work days. A few months later Mom told me that he was exhausted when he got home after helping me.

The home repairs that we did together remind me of the times when I was a teenager that he would hit the softball to me (just the two of us) for hours out in the big yard. He would hit it short, then deep, then to the left, then to the right trying to tire me out. Neither one of us would admit to the other that we were exhausted and wanted to quit.

I am not sure if that kind of persistence comes from being stubborn or proud, but am glad that I got some of it from my dad.

Lately, I remember Dad saying that "You never stop learning.." That has been sticking in my mind a lot lately because I do believe there is something to this. The goal in life is not getting to a specific destination, but it is about all that we learn along the way.

Today is Dad's 88 birthday. With his good health I think that he would still be alive and enjoying the early mild winter (actually late fall) here in Michigan except for the cancer.

I remember that his birth certificate had his birthday as December 19th rather than the 20th - he was born in the early morning hours and the doctor listed his birth one day early. Similarly when he passed away overnight his death certificate lists his death as May 6th. I noticed that he felt very cold to the touch at 9 am that morning and think that his death certificate may be off by one day too.

Happy Birthday Dad.
