Show and Tell Kelli @ There's No Place Like Home is hosting Show and Tell Friday. Don't miss seeing Kelli's special items! And be sure to check out all of the other treasures of those participating this week!

Remembering Dad...the veteran.
U.S. Army

Dad and Mom on their wedding day.

Dad writing a letter to Mom while in Korea. No email, video conferencing, or phones. Mom said that mail often took a month to arrive.

My grandfather (Dad's dad) holding my older brother, Loyd (their only child at the time) and Dad's picture in 1951.

Mom and Dad - 4oth Anniversary
Dad passed on into heaven in November, 2006. We love and miss him very much.
Mom and Dad had just celebrated their 59th anniversary that September.
What a blessing to have them as our parents...

I hope you have a wonderful weekend:)

How nice and yet sad at the same time. I still can't get over loosing my Dad in 2001. Were you a Daddy's girl, too?

Elena said...

What a beautiful tribute. I am truly thankful of your father's service to this country and what a wonderful thing to know that he is with the Lord. He probably has met my mom in heaven. It will be so wonderful when we all are reunited and with the Lord! Have a blessed weekend. Hugs, Elena

I don't know what I would have done if I had to wait a whole month to hear from my hubby. When he was in Iraq we were able to "chat" or "IM" each other every day and use our web cameras. So thankful for every person who has served!!! Loved all your pictures!!

Kelli said...

What a special show and tell! I enjoyed seeing your family photos and thank you for the reminder to be thankful for all who serve our country. Have a wonderful long weekend!

Hey Sweetie,
What a lovely post to share this Memorial Day. It was so sad on the news tonight they asked people what this day meant and so many couldn't answer correctly!! So thankful for your Dad's service to our country, and for all those who paid the ultimate price for our country!

Blessings and hugs to you, Linda. You are such a dear!
