Bye, Dad.

Today I found out that my dad died. He was only 56.



This was in '82 when he took us to Disneyland. What a cutie!



This is my dad, myself, with a classic Nike tee-shirt (Dad owned a shoe store) my sister Lani, and then my brother Zeke. We were at my grandmother's house--Dad's mom. She just died a few years ago. I like to think they are having some good chats now. =)


This is little me, and my dad. He was probably only 27 or 28 at the time. He always loved the outdoors.



And this is one of my favorite pictures of him. He always said his nose was so pointy he could use it as a pencil. But it was actually quite a handsome nose. =) We went cross country skiing in Sun Valley, and built a snow wall. My uncle Tom took this shot through a hole in the snow wall. Back before Photoshop. =)

I love you Dad. Thanks for sharing this time here with me. You are missed.
