Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to you, to your father, grandfather, your sons who are fathers, and any fathers in your family!

I always give credit to my dad for my love of reading, my gift of a green thumb, and my natural enjoyment of exercise. He was 84 when he came to visit us in the US. My brother and his wife accompanied him because he needed to use the wheelchair sometimes. He got up at 6:00 a.m. every morning to stretch for half an hour before doing anything else. During our travel and sightseeing, he walked as much as he could. He wanted me to get the Chinese Newspaper for him every day. The closest Chinese market is twenty miles away. They keep the Chinese newspapers for three days, so I bought the ones that were one or two days old also. My dad said those were old papers. He wanted to keep up with the current news. If he had stayed longer, probably he would help me with gardening.

My dad passed away at 86, less than a year after he had a stroke.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
