Happy Father's Day, Dad!

“Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!”
-Lydia M. Child



I would like you to meet my dad, Ralph Gordon. This is his graduation picture taken back in 1947. He stood 6'11". This is one of my favorite pictures of him. Isn't he just the most handsome fellow?

He was a wonderful dad with a love for the LORD! Dad had great sense of humor. . . . .you have to with 8 kids! lol
It is hard to believe that Dad has been gone 21 years this past May. Barely a day goes by that I don't think of him.

I love you, Dad, and can't wait until the day that we will all be together again in God's glorious kingdom!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, PAPA!!

I LOVE YOU!

That was beautiful! I posted about my dad too on my animal blog! He was 6'11" tall, how wonderful!!! I'm 6'1" myself! My dad was 6'3" inches or maybe 6'4". He was very tall and thin!
I miss him too.
