My Father's Son

Via Old Virginia Blog

Honest men like my Great-Grandfather who supported his blind wife and 16 children. Honest men like my Grandfather who supported his wife and 10 children, staying committed to the same woman for nearly 60 years and still saying she's the most beautiful woman, even though she passed on years ago. Honest men like my Dad, who has supported his wife and child for decades and still doing so today in failing health. And one day I am hoping of having my family say the same of me.

God bless them all.



Reminded me of the words my father wished on his tombstone:

"A Country Doctor"
