Today my Dad is 83.
The above picture is of him (in his uniform) with my Great Grandfather and Grandfather. My two Grandfathers passed away several decades ago. My Grandfather on the right lived into his 80's, and my Great Grandfather lived into his late 90's.

Time passes so quickly.
Too quickly.
It's hard to believe how quickly.

I love you Daddy and I am so grateful you are still on this earth.
You are still the world's BEST Daddy to me, and you always will be.
Happy Birthday.

    Mine has been gone since '95 but my mom is 89 and still active.
    As I get older (51 now) I find it's amazing how fast time seems to go by. Sometimes I'll think something that happened only a few years ago turns out to be 8 years ago! Stuff like leaves me saying "where did the time go?" -Lynne
