HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO MY SISTER AND HER HUSBAND!
I grew up a lucky kid...six brothers and one sister.
There was never a lonely moment in our home and you always had someone to play with, laugh with and cry with.
I love everyone of them.
In age order; Brian, Sean, Kevin, Doreen, Colleen, Emmett, Dermott, and Damian!
This photo was taken in April 2008 when we gathered for my Dad's funeral.
He was a proud man and had to raise most of us. My Mom passed away at an early age and 4 of us still lived at home. I was the oldest at the time at age 18; so it was myself and the three younger boys at home.
My Dad was a Cabinet Maker and made beautiful furniture. When I owned my store in the late 80's/early 90's he made furniture and other items for me to sell in the shop. What I liked most about that was he had to visit so he could make deliveries...that meant that I would get to see him at least once per week. Sometimes he would just come out for a ride to see how the shop was doing and he always had a cup of coffee and a tea biscuit to share!
I love this photo of him.
Always a proud Marine!
God Bless you Daddy!
