Father's Day

My father is buried here in Santa Monica, California, and due to the seminar requirements we will not be able to visit his gravesite until tomorrow, but it is because of him that I am able to be here for this informative event. So once again, for him, I give thanks and acknowledge his place in my life.
The picture of the Santa Monica Pier was taken to honor his memory as that was one of the last places I visited with him - surprisingly unchanged since that last sunny trip. He would be approaching 100 years of age were he still around... and paraphrasing his words, "If I could not be traveling at 45 miles an hour, steady on, I would not wish to continue." So he went on another journey, and I still miss him.
