Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today was always a day to remember in our family, and still is. The memories of my Dad’s Birthday and the many fun family celebrations that we had with him will be in my heart forever. He was fun, funny and loved his family. His family was everything to him and liked nothing more than an excuse for us all to get together and we did that as often as possible. I remember when he started the tradition of calling up the men in the family before Mother’s Day and asking them to bring a dish for dinner. I remember on my 40th Birthday he brought me 40 long stem red roses. Yep, there are many more where that came from. He loved each one of his 5 children and 13 grandchildren equally. I still miss him sorely after almost 5 years since his passing. So here’s to you Dad, Pop-Pop, Pop, D-Daddy -- Happy Birthday! This year, you have the love of your life with you to celebrate. XO
