It was one year before my Dad passed away that we’d had this time to share our lengthy conversation together in Vernon BC during The Feast of Tabernacles. He knew his end time was near which is why I think he wanted to have this time with me. I was leaving to visit friends in Texas for an unknown period of time and I think he felt sure he’d not see me again. During our visit together he spoke to me of many memories. This little story was inspired by some of what he'd said. we often look back at our lives and find remains of joyful memories. My parents brought 11 children into the world. Their lives were busy, chaotic and though hard times surely came upon them time and again...they loved us!
