Joys

In the next couple days, our family will be sending my Dad along to his next journey. It's not goodbye for us...if you knew my Dad, you know that he will be beside and letting us know it. As we gather there are many, many stories shared. It seems that everyone has a funny story to that starts as, "I remember the time when Jack....". The above picture is the last time photos were taken with him, along with son, Steve...retired from the Air Force. Steve is now considered to be a "Dirt Bag" with his haircut and received quite a bit of ribbing. I am packing a bag of Cheerios to send with my Dad. Not as a snack as one would imagine, but for the Gin Rummy games to be played with John C. who was notorious for eating them. There are still many tears and much laughter to be had, especially in the next few days. It is a new journey for us all.
