6 years ago this very day !

These are the flowers that Dave and the kids had sent to me to honor and commemorate my dear Dad.  He died 6 years ago today.  There has not been one single day that has gone by that I do not think of him.  He was kind hearted, gentle, had a great laugh ( although I am starting to forget what his voice sounded like), loved unconditionally, and was a great example of who I want to be like.  He loved my children and was always happy to be near them.  It didn't matter if he was just sitting at our dinner table sharing a meal, or helping one of the kids build something, he was happy.  He helped make me who I am as a person .  I love him and miss him and know that I will see him again one  day.  He helped me know Jesus.  I can't wait until I get to squeeze him once more.  The last time that I did, he didn't know it was me.  The next time, he certainly will.  To the best Dad ever....
D.F.S ( he knows what this stands for)

This was Sasha's second opportunity to go to the Lakes High School JROTC Military Ball.  It was held at the McChord AFB Officer's Club.  It was decorated beautifully and the kids had a great time.  She had a nice time and looked really beautiful.  I can't believe how grown up she looks.
