I always liked this picture as I think it shows a little of his spunk and I think he looks so very handsome. But then, I always thought my Dad was a handsome man, with beautiful twinkling blue eyes.
The last few years have been difficult for him, confned to a bed or wheelchair due to Parkinsons Disease and Diabetes. He yearned to be in his flower beds and workshop and being confined was like a prison for him. Well he broke free of the chains on Friday, March 11 at 12:55 am. I had the blessing of being with him when he took that last breath and felt a great loss for myself and my family, but joy for my Dad in that is was finally set free.
