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
