A Memorial To My Father

August 1924 .... September 2009
This post is not about the Prescott area, although the bottom left picture was taken in Jerome many years ago. As some of you know, my father passed away quietly at his home in southern Missouri three weeks ago. My sisters and I made the long journey to our home town in western Illinois, along with my husband and two sons and their wives and one grandson and good friends, to lay him to rest beside our mother. So this post is just a small tribute to his life.

It is so hard to lose a parent! I don't think one ever gets over it entirely. There isn't a day goes by that I don't think of my dad and wish I could talk with him again.

You have put together a beautiful memorial to your father and I'm sure he would be most pleased for it shows clearly your love and how you carry his memory in your heart.

May that memory bring you a sense of peace and even joy in the days ahead!

I agree with Jacob's sentiments completely. I met your father and he was a very nice man. We had dinner at a restaurant with Sharon, my parents, and Julie and her mother. Your tribute is excellent and very fitting.
