Father’s Day Gifts from the Past

Well, Father’s Day is coming up… Hallmark holiday or not, it’s still one of those “firsts” that I have to get through.

After losing my dad, Father’s Day had a gloomy feeling to it.  We still tried to remember my dad, but obviously, it just wasn’t the same.  However, when we … Continue reading
