On 9/30/09,at 212 am i lost my father.Since then Ive spent alot of time reflecting on daddy.Daddy Loved his God, His family and his country.Daddy has left me with some mighty good memory"s.Daddy overcame alot in his life.He was the oldest of 12 and grew up in the depression years.My grandfather was a acholoic and between Daddy & my grandmother they kept the family together.Daddy was only able to go as far as the 10th grade in school, but got his GED in the army.He never stopped trying to learn something new.I guess i got my love of books from him.My earliest memory of daddy was in church.he did his best to keep us kids on the straight & narrow, but if we fell short he still loved us.As a correctional Sgt Ive seen what happens when there isn't a strong father to guide you.I never had to worry about daddy drinking up the grocery money & coming home and beating everyone up.Never saw a time when there wasn't food on the table or our needs met.I feel a void right now ,but i can hear him tell me"stand tall boy,your mama needs you.Even now he guides me in my day to day life with the example he set for me in life.


  1. Sorry for your loss, Harry.

    It sounds like you still have love and respect for him in your heart, and that means he'll always be around.

    From here, seems as if he raised a fine son.

  2. Haven't been around in ages since I closed up my blog, but I have been praying for you & your wife for some time and wanted to check back to see how you are doing.

    I am so sorry to hear of your dad's death. What a painful loss of such an important person in your life! A part of him & his love will always remain in your heart. I am glad he was such a great & loving role model for you. It sounds like he was a friend to you as you grew older too. What a blessing to have a father like that!

    Still keeping you in my prayers. How is your wife doing? You mentioned some time ago that she had been diagnosed with leukemia. My family has been praying for her, and we hope she is doing well in spite of her diagnosis.

    Glad to hear your own cardiac issue was no more than angina, but that means you need to be careful, young man . . . :)

    Will continue to keep you & your family in my prayers, and my deepest condolences on the loss of your dad.
