Happy 100th

Today my dad if he was still living would have been 100 years old.  

At their 50th anniversary celebration in 1990 he expressed the wish to live to 100.

This was likely an engagement photo since they were married in September of that year.

He died 11 years shy of that target.

Mom made it almost to 95 before she joined him.

In searching for photos for this post I discovered that most of my photos of my dad are hard copies in albums or framed like one of him with me at a lakeside that sits here at my desk. 

I think I'll keep them saved that way.

Happy Birthday, Dad!
