my Dad

this hansome devil is my Dad. the picture was taken in the early 60s. gotta love that tweed jacket! he had that twinkle in his skye blue eyes right up til the day he passed. Dad is my hero, he raised me and my 2 sisters by himself for many years. He also help raised his then only granson for a short period of time. Dad always stepped up when he was needed. He taught me how to raise a child the good way. I think about my hero everyday and I still miss him. Happy Fathers day to all the Dads, Single Moms, Granparents and to those who stepped up when other would not.
Keep On Stitch'n On!

From your previous post your dad was in the Navy about the same time as mine. They were a special breed. My dad wasn't a single dad, but he always took care of his responsibilities even if he had to pass up things that he would like to do. Your dad sounds very special. My father passed away in 1997.
