Default Thinking About My Dad


My Corvette had sat in a barn in Wisconsin for over 10 years. Rats had gotten into it and did there damage. After extensive work, I had finished fixing it up. I showed the finished pictures of it to my dad. He was fighting a losing battle with stage 4 colon cancer. He said whose Corvette is that? I said dad, it's mine, all fixed up. He said it was beautiful. I had wanted to take him for a ride in it, but he kept getting weaker and weaker until the Lord called him home. It's been a year since he passed and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. How I miss that man. I guess that Corvette ride will have to wait until I join him. Love you dad.
