"Whatever you think you can do, or believe you can do, begin it, because action has magic, grace, and power in it." Goethe

Memorial Day

Leave a comment

Today is Memorial Day. I’ll use this space to honor the memory of two special men: Thomas Franklin Sorsby and Lucian Anthony Tirrito, my father and father-in-law, respectively.
They were veterans. But above that, they were men. Adding the word good seems redundant.
They were kind, fair, patient, and honest.
Their eyes twinkled when they laughed.
And that was often.
They loved America.
They loved me.
They came in and out of my life in a flash.
I knew Daddy eleven years; Papaw for fifteen.
But it was long enough to know the blessing they were.
Cherish your loved ones.
