Everyday until Christmas, I am going to try to post a picture from a past family Christmas.
Here is the father who went without lunch and saved his lunch money to buy the Rita Doll in my last post. He did many other things for me throughout his life. He built me a doll house, a model train layout, and ran to every store in the area with me to find red wax lips that were popular at that time. He was always there for me, gave me advice, tutored me in history, walked me down the aisle, and was a wonderful grandfather too. I know he liked my husband because he told some friends of ours that he hoped when their girls grew up they would find someone like my husband. I loved my dad, and I have no doubt he loved me. So many times I wish I could talk to him and get his advice now. But that will have to wait until another time. I still have the manger scene under the tree. You can’t see the dress I am wearing very well, but it was made by Aunt Fran, my grandmother’s sister.
