During Thanksgiving week my Aunt Darlene, her husband Gerry and my youngest cousin (now 8) came to down Disneyland. I was happy that we were able to meet up with them. My 15 year old daughter remembers when they came down about 4 years ago and adores my little cousin Nikki. My boys were not so interested in the whole affair, but they got desert out of the deal. We had a nice time and told a bunch of kid friendly jokes while catching up on family news. When I would take my family up north to see my grandmother, my aunt would try to find time to stop and in visit, but I don't get to see her too often.

My Uncle Gerry told me that he had a photo of my father and would send a copy down. I received the photo today. I don't have a lot of photos of my father, especially from so long ago. I hadn't seen this look before. My father passed away when I was young, so the few things I have are precious to me. Thank you uncle.

Aloha David,
I am so happy you were able to obtain a picture of your Dad. I remember taking a lot of photos but when I moved I left behind many of my personal belongings.
Thank you for sharing!!
