35 years ago on August 9th
where were you?
were you even born?
I had just graduated from high school in Alabama in May and I was headed to AUBURN in September. My daddy was sick but he would get better, surely.
He died on August 9th. It seems like a million years and then again it seems like yesterday.
When my daddy fought in WWII, he was injured and sent to a hospital. While there, he memorized all the poems in a poem book called 101 Famous Poems.
I think I shall set aside some time today to read some poetry from that book and thank God for my wonderful daddy.
