Happy Father’s Day, Dad!

His View, I love you Dad!


  1. A lovely post. You honour him (and your mother) with this blog and their story 😉

    • Thank you! On days like this I miss him so much!

  2. I’m thinking of your dad today too–happy Father’s Day to him!

    • How awesome is that? Thank you so much Madame!

  3. Reblogged this on High Flight and commented:
    What a beautiful tribute to your father – a true hero. How blessed are we to have such fantastic role models!

  4. I love the desert. Your dad has a great view from his resting place.

    • We buried both my mother and my sister before he passed and we had a talk. My parents purchased all of our family plots in the graveyard where my grandparents lie. Dad told me, on one of these occasions that he did not want to be buried there. He told me to have him cremated and put him where the wind would blow through his hair. This is a place we camped when we were kids. A fitting tribute, I think.

      • What a fitting resting place for him, where he was the happiest. A fitting tribute indeed. This is also a fitting tribute of the pictures. Hugs – Patty

      • Thanks my friend!

  5. Very touching images Nancy. It’s very clear how dear your Dad is to you. Keep up the good work you’re doing a great job.

    • Thank you so much it really means a lot to hear those words! God Bless.

  6. Thanks for stopping by our blog and “Liking” “In Honor of Father’s Day.” Had the opportunity to browse your blog, your stories and mission are very touching. Keep up the good work.

  7. Beautiful – thanks!

  8. How lovely. And you’ve been honoring him for quite some time! Debra
