Happy Father's Day to all! I hope you all have a wonderful, happy and blessed day!

I'm remembering my father on this day. He was the best Father in the world. Such and kind, gentle and loving man. He gave my sister and I the most wonderful childhood. He was truly a great man. His family always came first in his life. Miss you Daddy and Love you so much!
The picture above was taken in Newfoundland in 1954, my sister Elizabeth, my Dad and myself. Look at that old picket fence, we were renting the Premier's house, at the time there was no base housing available.
Bless you, Shirl

And now we know why Shirl loves picket fences. Your Father sounds like a wonderful Dad. I'm so happy you had such a loving warm childhood especially from our Dads! My Dad is now 75 years young and still kicking. He has always been my hero. Happy Fathers Day to all our special Dads. What a beautiful tribute to your Dad, thanks for sharing.
