Father's Day isn't the same any longer
June 18, 2017 6:57am CST
I am my father's daughter and according to my mother I was from day one. I am just like him in looks and other ways. He did pass on to me many important things, like handling money, work ethic, cooking (my mom didn't cook!) and how to do vegetable gardening. The last Father's Day I celebrated was in 2009, my father died three months later. It is hard to believe it has been 8 years. I won't get all sentimental, I deal with things like this quietly and not publicly. For those of you who still have your dad's, be sure to celebrate with him. Photo is mine.

I have also been my father's daughter since day one. I love my Mom, but it's not the same special relationship that I had with my father. It's a very long time that he has gone. The last father day I celebrated with him was in 1976. He was too young to go, I miss him every day.

I wish I could celebrate with my Dad @AbbyGreenhill . He lives in Iowa and has Alzheimer's. I tried to call him this morning but the phone just rang. I called his wife's cell and it said, "The mailbox you are calling is full." Oh great!!!!!
