Father's Day - that special day on the calendar that we all remember, honor, thank our Father ....just for being here. For me, this has been a day to remember as I lost my father at the age of 10. I remember my father was 'fun'. We spent time going to his office in downtown Tampa and running up and down the stairs, we visited his parents home in a small town called Henderson, North Carolina, he got us our (my) first dog - Buddy. There are other memories as well. Fathers are special men in the lives of their children. To many children don't have that special person in their daily lives. If you're a father, please spend time with your child or children - they will remember all the little things you do and you may be surprised by what they remember. Here's a picture of my father as a young man "Tyrus Ollie Perdue". He was named after Ty Cobb, a baseball player and his father, George Ollie Perdue.
Happy Father's Day Dad!
