I am a huge fan of "The Wally Show" out of Nashville, TN. This year, Wally shared with the listeners his letter to his dad for possibly the last Father's Day with him. It got me to thinking about remembering my dad. Momma and I have talked about him a lot over the last week, and I had an idea to do a father's legacy for him. I want a place that I can have facts and stories about him that I can go back to read at a later time to remember him, and also for my family to have as well.
So here is the first installment of this tribute to my dad!

spending time with family (sometimes napping), fishing, blackberry picking, church softball, gardening
What sport did you like the most? why? High School (football and baseball) - watching on TV was basketball.
(Memory from DeeJay - I remember sometimes when playoffs for college would be on and daddy would be watching. I was not a fan at all, but I did like to watch sometimes especially if daddy was into the game. I remember once watching and there was a great game winning shot. I remember talking about it later with him and I was glad that I watched it with him.
Favorite Team? Baseball - Cincinnati Reds / Football - OSU Buckeyes
What was your favorite vacation spot?
Mom remembers some vivid ones - Becky & Mike took you to FL and you enjoyed that one.
Also the family vacation in WV and Pigeon Forge, TN
As a kid I remember we ALWAYS went to Tennessee Temple University bible conference for our family vacation. The famous saying "Chuch, chuch, chuch. All we do is chuch" was said.
