|the first time i went back to his grave after the headstone |
had been put in, i am still proud of the design
and that it is not your traditional marker,
just like how he was not your traditional father.
|my high school graduation in June of 2006, our last picture of just the two of us|
|Oct. 2006 the last vacation my dad had, he came to Utah to see the BYU kids and his siblings.|
|I currently have 10 copies of this magazine in my possession, I guess you could say i have always been proud of it.|
The right image is of the Orlando Sentinel the time my dad made the cover for stealing a B-17 bomber when he was 17...
I remember the time i found the newspaper that had details for my dad's crash from 1989. I had never really known what had happened and it seemed weird that no one ever really said anything about it. It wasn't until i was in high school and one of my sisters and i were talking about how bad it was. We both knew that it would have been better for my dad if he had died in the crash, but i will always be grateful he hung on so i had a chance to spend time with him. The last 18 years of his life were pretty crappy and I feel kind of selfish for being grateful that he lived them, i guess it just means that i have be something that he would be proud of to make that time worth it.
i like to think that my creative side and photography skills came from him. that should make him happy.
