A Birthday Remembered

My father would have been 73 years old today. Sadly, a decade and a half has passed since he was taken away from us. I was touched by my elder daughter Laura's words on Facebook:

Again today so sad I cry
Another year has passed us by
Wish heaven had a phone to call

And wish you the happiest birthday of all.

Underneath her hard exterior lurks a sensitive wee soul!

Mike that is such a gorgeous photo of your father and Laura.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a telephone in heaven or in the opposite direction if you happen to get lost and end up in the wrong place!

Your Dad was a handsome man, Mike. Being able to make that phone call would be absolutely priceless.

Cheers, jj
