I have a wonderful Dad. I don't see him often; but he's funny and kind and smart and helpful -- all the things a dad should be. And he's 79 and in pretty good health.
Not so my children's Daddy and my lovely Ex! He died 2 1/2 years ago at the age of 57! And he was a darling man and a wonderful father.
He was a somewhat reluctant daddy-wannabe at first; afraid that he wouldn't be any good at it, was what he told me. But he was a natural!
The best gift Larry ever gave his girls was his total acceptance of who they were and his undying love. He adored his girls -- and they know it!

Happy Father's Day Larry. You are missed!

So sorry he is gone; glad you have wonderful memories, at least!

That is far too young to die. He looks like he was a wonderful father. Family bonds are eternal, thank goodness for that. xxoo

What a beautiful tribute. You can see the love for his little girls in the pictures.
