I shared a picture of Dad and Autumn at the blue berry patch that we went to every summer. They love each other very much!! She misses him and talks about him often.

It is kind of fitting altho sad that Dad passed away on the 4th of July. But the 4th was his favorite holiday aside from spending Christmas with Autumn. He always made sure that we had a wonderful 4th of July BBQ to celebrate our freedoms!!! Now Dad has the ultimate pain-free freedom one can achieve. Love and miss you always Dad. Love, Cat
