R.I.P. Dad
I will remember all the great times we had , all the stores you have told us as we grow up.
when we went camping on Man lake in 1993 when i was board and the kids had found a frog and you hooked it to the line and told me to cast it out and watch he will swim to try and get away but i i could not see the frog any more to pull up fast on the line and real it up. i was having a great time watching the frog try to get away and i would real him back then it would swim out again ,till i could not see the frog i stood up and said my frog was gone, everyone yelled out jurk the line and real it up , Cathy got the video cam and started videoing me ( it was hard ) but i realed it up it was a pike and you held up the fish and told me to just hold you hand (because i am the city slicker in the family and would not hold the fish my self for a pic. or like in 2016 when Me and my best friend Sheri Cook came up you took us to a place (cant remember the name ) to go out in your boat fishing , Sheri and Mitzie stayed on shore and you took Cathy and I out in the boat to fish ,the 3 of us had great lauphs well out there in the boat,frist when i had a fish on the line and it spit the hook out at Cathy you said you would have never belived that if you had not seen it your self ( good thing Cathy put her hand up )because she would have gotten the bober right in the kisser . then i see that we where getting water in the boat when i stood up to real in my fish and told you and Cathy that there was water in the boat and Cathy looked back at you the water was up to you knees and yell we are sinking and asked you where the baler was ? you told her you forgot it . then told us to dump the worms into the case you had some hooks and bobbers in and use that to bail the water out of the boat. Cathy said that we should go back but oh no you wanted to find your spot !!!! and went out feather, then i got my fish in and Cathy took it off the hook and put it in the boat it was swimming in the boat so i put my feet up on the sides of the boat. then you got us stuck on a rock and when i stood up we got unstuck and that is when you said we are heading back to shore, but we didn't get fair because you moter died so Cathy and i palled well you where bailing the water out of the boat lol but we did make it back to shore and i jumped out of the boat on a rock slipped and went under the boat.but we got you out of the boat dumed the lake back, and had lunch. that was a day i will never for get.
thank you Dad for everything you have shared with will be i my heart all ways.
I love and miss you Turkey xoxoxoxo

one of my fun mermories was camping on an island when I was 16 and one day after aunt Sandy swept the ground she uncovered a root and rose was stoking the firepit and a little frog was jumping towards the fire, so i picked it up & went to throught it into the water so it wouldn't dye, but i triped over the root and enend up throwing the frog into the fire anyways and fell on my back with my foot in the fire. Rose and i started laughing and then Dad came over swearing & yelling at me to get up beacuse my runner was smoking but while he was pulling my hand to get me up he was standing on my hair and he didn't know. Rose & i were laughing so hard we coulden't tell him and he just kept swearing and yelling and pulling at my arm while trying to get me up. I will miss you Dad for all the laughs we had.
