I lost my father this week. He was a man for the ages. I made the little booklet for his 2009 Father’s Day, and thought I would share his story with you.
His childhood was difficult. His father was a ner-do-well. He was homeless, and motherless and yet he and his siblings managed to rise above their childhood circumstances to grow up to become good people and citizens.
I love my father with all my heart, and wrote two songs for him.
