Two years ago today Daddy left his earthly home to his heavenly home. Although his leaving brought sadness to us, I am very sure it brought peace, rest and joy to him. I did not expect to be in the great northwest on the two year anniversary of his death, but a last minute decision to escape here for 10 days found us here. Therefore, I have thought a lot about him yesterday and today as I have walked among the trees and along the shores in one of the states he loved. Daddy loved the outdoors. But to be specific, he loved Washington and Oregon. I am thankful to have been able to enjoy the sights, smells, and quietness of the Oregon scenic byways as I know Daddy always did. I’m thankful for the memories and I’ll always love and miss my Dad!
