In memory of Dad

A beautiful memorial to my dad was erected today. Right in my front yard, no less.

It has brought with it a mixed bag of emotions. Pride. Sorrow. Wonder. Loss. Gratitude.

I think it's a lovely addition to the farm.

And a lovely reminder of the people, the sacrifices and the hard work that has gone into this farm. We are forever grateful. And we will never forget.

Thanks, Aunt Nancy and Uncle Jim. Your memorial is a fitting tribute not only to Dad, but to our whole family.

I've been reading your blog for almost a year now and enjoying every minute of it. Thanks for sharing your life on the farm with us. The sign is a wonderful way to memorialize your dad and ancestors. They would all be very proud and awestruck of the way you have handled things. I know that your mom is.

The sign looks wonderful! Dad would love it. Can't you just see him saying, "Nice, huh?" in his nonchalant way? And then grab his work gloves and 'git back at it.'
