Happy Father's Day


















Happy Father's Day to my father! Probably my biggest memory of my father is that when I was growing up, he would rock me and sing to me. My father has a beautiful singing voice, and always sang my favorites. Another thing I remember is that my father wasn't ticklish. I tried and tried to tickle him, but it didn't work. Throughout his life he has loved fishing, basketball, golf, good music, and watching sports on television. He has always been a good, loving father to me. Happy Father's Day Dad!

I always imagine I can hear Dad singing when I hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It sounds like he is singing with them, and his voice has stayed strong even as he has aged.

I think we have been lucky to have a righteous dad who deeply loves our mother, and a dad who provided for us. A lot of my friends growing up didn't have that.

I remember sitting in church and I could always hear dad singing over the congregation. You could always pick his voice out. I remember him singing with his Barbershop Quartet. I loved to hear them sing "Cool Water" or "Tumbling Tumbleweeds". I wish he and the boys would get a Quartet and sing sometime for family reunions.
