been thinking of my dad a lot recently… his birthday was in November and he spent time overseas as a soldier, so during these days of remembrance it just seems right to look back at some lovely memories…

this photo is from Then to Now, the history of La Salle, Manitoba…

a gentle man, in all ways… he spoke quietly but if you were in trouble you knew it… not that you’d be in trouble very often…

he always saw the best in people, which made him particularly suited for his work with Canada Manpower where he helped individuals figure out what type of work they were best suited for, and then found them an appropriate position… in those days you might only have one or two jobs in your career…

at home, he took in strays… not animals, lol, people… we would often have someone staying with us who needed a safe place to regroup for a while…

he was wise and generous… one of those people who always had a thoughtful opinion when you needed it, although, only when asked… and would give you the shirt off his back, or anything else he had, if he felt it would help…

he has been gone for over thirty years but I can still hear his wisdom

I miss you dad…
