My pop and mom at our daughter Katie’s wedding in 2012.
My mom and pop at our niece Debbee’s wedding in 2013. On this wedding weekend we also celebrated our mom and pop’s 90th birthday.
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,
to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
This celebration was at the end of April of 2013 and my mom passed away in September of 2013.
My dad continued to live in his senior apartment after my mom passed away and these photos are from visits from my sisters and nieces and nephews.
My pop meeting his newest grandson in January of 2015. Andrew was adopted from the Ukraine in 2014. Early in 2015 my pop finally realized it was time for him to move in with my sister Kathy’s family.
At my sister’s home he’s enjoying his pastime from long ago and helping his days go by while putting together jigsaw puzzles again. This next photo is of Pop enjoying his favorite chair at his new place at my sister’s home.
I’m cracking up at his finger on the remote with the new puzzle in his lap. You can see the edge of the latest puzzle he is working on in the bottom left of that photo.
Pop’s youngest great granddaughter born on Christmas Eve of 2015. This is a photo at their first meeting early in 2016.
That’s me with a pigeon on my head with my pop and sisters Kathy and Vera in the 50’s in Pico Rivera, California.
My pop on a camping trip in the 50’s putting together a jigsaw puzzle. That’s me next to him with the Buster Brown hairdo.
In our backyard in Pico Rivera with my dad’s yellowtail catch if I remember correctly.
Me and my pop at the airport on my way to England with our Christian Rock Band in 1973.
This is a mish mosh photo tribute to my pop. I love my pop and thank God for him and his love and care for me and our whole family over the years. His best support currently have been his prayers for each of us every night before he goes to bed, on his knees, next to his bed. Happy Birthday Pop!
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26 (ESV)
And here he is today at my sister’s home blowing out the candle on his birthday pie!
