Old Daddy Rabbit 9

My dad....he is the father of 9 children....has 25 grandchildren.....23 great-grandchildren.....and 1 great-great-grandchild.


He had a wonderful sense of humor, and knew how to have fun.


He was always supportive, showed an interest in what I was doing, and was happy to see my projects.


He was the family photographer.....the maker, and keeper of memories.



He lived his life to the fullest.....knew what his priorities were and what was important in life, and didn't waste time on things that weren't.
I will miss the almost daily e-mails from 'old daddy rabbit 9', sharing funny and thoughtful messages.
I love you dad....thanks for the memories.
