Happy Father’s Day…

Alvin Sydney Frankland

That’s my dad’s name.
When he was the age of this picture, he called himself, “Abby Siddey”.

My dad died on March 20, 1997.

And I can’t say that I believe there has been one day, since that day, in which I haven’t thought of him.
Even if it was just a thought about my awareness of him not being here anymore.

You know, sometimes we never really know what we have, until it is gone.
And, sometimes… we do.

Miss you, dad. Everyday.

Pat - What a sweet pic of your dad as a child. Time flies, they don’t seem to be gone that long, ever.
