On wings and a prayer : Tribute to daddys and soliders

my father passed away 1983.. in November. . he was an elegant man full of a poetic spirit.
he was a dancer… aah. smiles.

he would give us a kiss every single morning without fail . on our foreheads of his four daughters
he had a special place in his heart for my mom .. who had the prettiest eyes in the world he said ..
he had way with all the girls he knew:). his eyes had a special twinkle

dad was generous to a fault and lost more than we could ever count

as soon as he finished eating he would drink a cup of strong black coffee in a tiny cup with tons of sugar in it

he brought us a piano when none of us could play , just so maybe one of us would:)

..we never did learn , but we sure knew how to bang it

he owned a laundry where he would invite his friends to play dominoes in .. lol. the business was a social gathering

he had a complex that never left him , because his mom had a few different husbands , in a time when that was a non . well it still is. but , you know

he had a melancholy way about him , and always thought of others before he remembered himself.. he would pay the painter lets say , before the painter painted.. is how we described him

daddy made each one of us feel as though we were his very favorite daughter


love you papi..

and this was my suggestion for a memory home page.

in honor of him and all soldiers of all the world .. daddy was one of you
