“My” Favorite Fathers…

I picked my “immediate” favorite Fathers…

We have so many in our BIG extended family

My son Doug… is not a “Father” but, the best Uncle any kids could ever have…

Sometimes “surrogate” fathers are wonderful… the ones who play games, always have movies available, treats on hand and lots of love to give…

My son Brian… has turned into one of the Best Dads I know…

I’ve never seen so much love oozing out of a person for his three kids

and they know it!…

Hugging… smooching… playing with them… talking to them… disciplining them…

and working hard every day to provide for them…

My brother Eddie has passed… and will truly be missed today…

A  wonderful Dad… as you would see by his 3 grown children

Two daughters and one son + two children who died as infants… 

and three Grandchildren

Worked hard every day… taking them on many trips… eating out a lot and just showing his love in his hugs and grin…

My dad ( Edward )…with my Brother Eddie…

Served in the Navy…

Had us three children…+ raised our half-brother and sister

18 Grandchildren and 42 Great-Grandchildren and 8 Great-great Grandchildren “as of today”…

( I might hear differently if someone counts better than me)…

Provided by working hard every day… building our home…

and giving us love and discipline…

Taking us on many trips… teaching us so many things about life…
