Dad

Happy Birthday Daddy...

Today would have been his 81st birthday.

G called me yesterday to ask "What was Dad's favorite flower?" And it's sad because I either don't remember or never knew. Mom's was easy - she loved yellow roses and we always got them for her on special occassions. But Dad?

Coming home from school, he'd often be refinishing a golf club in the garage and he'd look up and he'd always say "Hi Sweetheart" when he saw me.

The only thing we'd buy for Dad would be a box of one dozen Titleist DT golf balls. I wonder if a bouquet of golf balls would be more appropriate?

ETA: 05-13-07 - per K, his favorite flowers? Chrysanthemums

When my grandfather the golfer died, we made sure there was a golf tee in his pocket and a golf ball in his hand.

I think your dad would like the bouquet of balls *hugs*

That's a nice memory of your dad. Golf balls would be perfectly fine, I think.

Hi Tabitha! Golf balls would be great :) How old were you when he passed?

Yesterday was Erik's b-day too.

How about a bouquet of golf balls on stems, and "sweetheart" roses?

*hugs*

Hugs, dear heart. My dad called me "rosebud". I'd never let anyone else do it,and I'd give a lot to hear it one more time.

Hugs.
