|Ed, you made me cry when reading this. So much of your fathers past fell into your lap...."We're gonna have a good time then", fit so appropriately. I hope you grew to know more about your Dad as well as your mother that day.|

|I agree with Chanti, Ed. This poem does invoke the special memories we have of our childhoods and the time spent with our fathers. This is absolutely beautiful! My Dad is still living, but he is in poor health and I cherish the times that we have together.

|A poem that made me smile but also put a tear in my eye. I can relate to that time you spent 'visiting' with your dad. I experienced the same when my father died and I had to pack up his belongings. Those memories I found made me feel closer to him too.
Enjoy your visit on Father's day.

|Sounds like his spirit ws there with you at the old house - memories are what life is about but we do need to move on. Some of us are not so fortunate to have all the good memories so that is what forgivness is all about. We must weigh those careful with the good ones and be thankful for what we do have. Pain does not last accept for a little while and after it is over it is hard to remember - That is a gift from God.|
