I have alot of good memories of my dad enough to write a book,but when I think of my father[ fairness,caring and integrity] come to mind. It makes me feel good all of the good things and good deeds my dad have done in his life.He taught me loyality,he taught me how to never give up or give in. He taught me the value of a tree,a fish and the smallest and weakest of Gods creatures.He taught me not to be afraid of death or anything elese,but to live life to the fullest.He taught me be self employed and self reliant and never get stuck in a job that wasn't worth doing. He taught me not to judge people by income or race,but by their good deeds.He was a true gentleman and was also role model for many a young man.My dad was very well-respected in our community and was a power house and I'm going to make sure he is honoured appropiately. My dad never had to tell anybody he was a christian,you knew he was by his actions and how he lived life.From the time I can remember, I took great pride in hanging with and helping my dad. I learned how to drive at age six,practiced in the fields.He taught me how to be responsible with guns and not use them as toys.He taught me freedom wasn't free.My favorite memories of my dad revolved around livestock-I was very good with animals and I would amaze him with my fearlessness. I use to love it when he worked the mules,I would ride them to the fields and ride on all of the equipment.One mule would sit down on the job and not get up,that was very funny.He would hollar,but that mule would not move,that mule was just as stubborn as him.OOPs, time for church....later.

Me and my dad used to hunt armidillos at night.(with flashlights because we just looked for them).We found a lot. It was very fun. I loved finding armidillos.
We also went down to our spot on the creek and shot at sticks and plastic eggs for practice.He had a lot of guns and I had my own.He used too lay them on his bed too admire and take pictures of them.
My dad used too make me into a sandwich using pillows and blankets. It was very fun and funny.
One time when we went camping in the Keys by the ocean he put a granola bar on his knee and a squirrel got on his knee and ate it! We went on trips a lot.
My dad had a lot of motorcycles(Triumphs).He had a whole room devoted to motorcycles. and two or three he actually drove alot not to mention a ton small motorcycle models. :)

My father was a family man. He worked hard at a job he hated to provide for his wife and children. The harshest words I ever heard coming out of my father's mouth toward my mother was to call her a "birdbrain". I rember my father kissing my mother passionatley right in the middle of the kitchen, in broad daylight...in front of us kids. My father taught me how to think for myself, to stand on my own two feet, to hold a good moral compass and to value family.

My grandfather was a great cook.His food was always delicious and when he got sick he always said people ruined perfectly good food.:) I loved him a lot.
He always threatened to run over peoples toes if they didn't get out of the way.(but he did not run over Lucky. He would wait for Lucky to move.)

Tennessee, you should submit what you wrote somewhere. You paint a picture with words that would do any farmer proud.

Support I'm agreeing with Always. That memory book is a good idea. I think I'm going to work on that as well.

Thanks for suggesting that.

Hi,I am tennessee's daughter.I am 10 years old.-(This is a tribute to my dad.) My dad was a great man. He was always there for me.I loved him so much and I hope he is with his dog in heaven.My dad loved motorcycles.One time he even snuck me on the motorcycle without mom knowing.I told her though.My dad was a tree doctor and he grew trees (very nice japanese maples and others).We love trees and wildlife.It was so sad when he died of cancer.I miss him so much.My dad was VERY funny.He had a lot of dogs.He also had some turtles and hermit crabs. We put flowers on his grave every week.We put birdhouses up also and bluebirds have been coming for a few years.My little yorkie even put her rib bone on his grave.(she really was enjoying it and she still put it on his grave.)
