I know I have not been blogging lately. Unfortunately, my dearest Father passed away Feb 2 after a cardiac arrest. He was 76 years old. I am very sad and having a rough time getting back into the swing of things. This is my first post since he passed away. I am hoping that posting this memorial for him will help me to move forward. I miss so many things about him. He was my gardening buddy, and we would have long conversations about gardening. And, he had lots of great stories about growing up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. So, he now rests in the arms of my Heavenly Father.
