    C. M.,

    where the content moves the form; because the content is so genuine and honest, the form follows

    wonderful detail. meant to be read outloud - I could hear it as I read it silently -

    It's hard to know who your reader will love more; your father, or you. Hugs. t x

    Chris...This was a sweet and touching tribute to the man who helped you grow to the person you are today. He sounds like a firm, yet warm man...and your obvious respect and love of him...stands tall and proud!
    Hugs,
    Dee

    Without getting very descriptive, you manage to paint his portrait for me with your unbeatable style that I'd recognize in an instant. Great job, Chris, love this tribute to your patera. Take pride in the fact that you do look like the good doctor, may God rest his soul.

    Chris - this is a very touching, beautifully sketched portrait of your (father?) penned with 'dry backyard garden wit' (just like him) and a complete absence of sentimentality (just like him too, I bet) . You give the reader just enough information to see him, but not too much so as to over egg the pudding. A warm and loving tribute, I'm sure he would approve. love, Allie xxxx

    The older generation certainly lived through interesting times. I look like my old man too. There are many ways to honour them, especially by using words in times of peace.
