Dad in his early 20s, while serving in the Marine Corps
I miss the sparkle in his eyes when he smiled, and the way he teased my mom. I even miss the way he used to crab about things behind my mother's back, swear, and stomp off to the bedroom.
Just a few years before he died. Just look at the mischief in those eyes :)
Dad seemed closer to me than my three sisters. Maybe because they didn't live there, but I think it's because we understood each other.
Happy Birthday, Dad. I love you so very much.
