My Daddy



This is my Daddy when he was in the Navy in WWII. He was always a very good looking man, even as he got older. He had a very hard childhood,,lost his Mom at young age and had a father who didn't treat him so great.
He was a good dad to me and my brothers. He had the funniest sense of humor,,but also had some bad mood swings. Which I, and my brother's inherited. Daddy loved to dance, and travel. We always went to Florida every summer,,he loved the beach. He also was a great photographer. He died of Leukemia 19 years ago on Christmas day. I was pregnant with my daughter. My brother and I stayed with him to the end, we knew he would have done the same for us. I still miss him!
