A year without a Santa Claus...

I haven't the way to say this.. 
On December 18th 2013 my father lost his battle with cancer..
He was the greatest man I ever knew. 
He was the man who I measured all men next to..
I remember the long car rides listening to the music of Johnny Cash 
& Freddy Fender..
He was a master fisherman & the teller of jokes..
He loved us all beyond measure.. 
He walked me down the isle 
on my wedding day.. 
Even got to meet our first born son, David John.
David was the apple of his grandpa's eye..

I took the following picture yesterday morning.. 
We were on our way to the church, 
to go see dad one last time.. 
I was trying to catch the sun dogs-the rainbow on the right side of the sun-
Later, much later after we laid dad to rest.. 
I looked at my phone to see that there was a face, 
dad's face in the clouds 
I know he is watching over us all.. 

Merry Christmas to you!
