Today if Dad had lived he would have been 83. This is how I remember him always in a cap and his fearless fly glasses. Oh, how he did not like for me to kid him about those glasses but I would tease him how they were too big and rode down on his nose. The picture above was taken in 1998 the year Mother died. As I have stated before he was a much better person, once Mother met him at the door with a frying pan. He would take Mom to Church, he stopped drinking, running around and smoking. He even cleaned up his language until he would get frustrated. But in the last few years his language was cleaned up as he would say "I just got to get to Heaven to be with your Mother." We kids forgave him long ago and when he became a Christian, God forgave him however, I do not know if he ever forgave himself.
The Kitty Justice is he was a very good Grandpa to his grandchildren. If he had lived, I would have called him EARLY this morning to wish him a Happy Birthday because like him, I am and early morning person.
