My father-in-law would have been 60 years old today and he's been celebrating with Jesus.
On August 5th, 2008, we all had to say goodbye. Not forever, just for a little while. It still seems unreal to me that he isn't here to give his children and grandchildren a hug, to give his in-laws a hard time :), to tease the boys about the He-Man Woman Haters Club, to cop talk, dress in Class A uniform, drive his car around the streets of Orleans, and have coffee with the guys at Shell. It seems like I should still hear his voice coming across the scanner. Or see him smiling when he was up to something......and you knew when he was.
I remember vividly scenes from Christmas, birthdays, special ocassions.....all the laughter. And of course, his peanut butter fudge (I still can't get it right).
We love you Ed! Happy Birthday.
