Today I remembered...

When I was little, on Sunday mornings when we were all getting ready for church, my dad would go out to the garage and start the car to warm up, and then he'd come back in and stand by the front door calling out, "Last call for all aboard! Last call for all aboard!" He said "All-a-BOW-ward," just like a train conductor.

Also it was his birthday two days ago (12-1). He turned 79, so he says, "Now I've started my eightieth year."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your wonderful father. I remember Jim and Bonnie as faithful pillars in our church....
steady, wise, thoughtful and kind.
I have been blessed by their lives and family. So very grateful!
