A few years ago for Christmas I made my Step-dad at special memories scrapbook about his family history. I included old photographs, family research, and articles that I found about his home town, and a lot more. He was thrilled and I’m so glad that I did that for him. It was one of those gifts that actually meant something to a man who already had so much. I gave him the gift of memories.
This is the first Christmas that “Dad” isn’t here with us, and it’s only been a few months since he left this world so he is sorely missed. I posted a tribute about him HERE, but now I’ll simply share a poem and a little Christmas slide show including scenes of time spent during our last Christmas with him. I hope that if you are missing a loved one this year that you will find a special way to keep them close to your heart and in your memories.
