    Jeanne, such a beautiful Pick! I am sorry for your loss. My dad has been gone for many years now- over 7; and I still miss him very much.

    Thank you, Lorrie.

    I almost forgot – here are his favorite pants. This was my college graduation 30 years ago. I just gave away the pants this year. :D

    My dad had a ratty old gray sweater with a cigarette hole in the arm. He would not get rid of it, and he wouldnt let me sew it either. He said it suited him the way it was. :)

    Mommykat your words almost brought tears to my eyes. My dad’s name was Joe and HE had a ratty old gray sweater that he would even wear to church if my mom didn’t fuss at him!

    Lorrie – I do still have his ratty flannel shirt. Maybe this winter it’ll go in the fire. Sort of ceremoniously.
    Sali Jo – were you named after your dad?

    I named my little business after my mother’s wish to name her ceramic business after her three kids SAndy LInda and JOe. So in her honor my busines is
    Sali Jo Gems. She is the president of my fan club at a vibrant age of 92. Our family calls her “Sweetie” as her name. Because she is an angel.

    Jeanne, what a wonderful tribute to your dad! I lost mine 9 years ago. We all took our favorite articles of clothing – I still wear them all! Then he’s always with me…
