Happy Father's Day, OM
I tried to write a post about my dad and what he meant to me … but it was too hard, too painful, especially since this is our first Father's Day without him. Instead, here are photos of OM as a father and grandfather. OM loved nothing more than being with his family. I hope these photos give you an idea of what a great and loving father he was.
I love you and I miss you, OM.

Some of these photos were given to us by my cousin Gina and her family, who gave us an album of family photos at OM's memorial service. I'd never seen many of the photos, and others brought back great memories. It's one of the most thoughtful and treasured gifts our family has ever received.
