|Dad and Jack|
|Dad and Owen|
My Dad was a residential builder his whole work career. He started doing masonry work but almost immediately went into building. He built houses for 54 years. I remember going with him to the cinder block supplier or the lumberyard. He had a green dump truck that he loved and we would ride everywhere in it. He built 2 homes for our family and my parents are still living in the last one he built. He was and still is a hard working man. He was always a little gruff and never showed his love for us by hugging us or giving us a kiss but we always knew he cared. I think he has really mellowed with age and even tells me he loves me every once in a while. Last June we all had a scare. He was hospitalized in June and almost passed away. He got bit by a tick and got some bacterial infection that was horrible. We are also so glad he had good Drs. and they saw him through.
Happy Birthday Dad!! Love you :)!!
