Pop’s memories

My youngest sister once gave my father a book entitled “Dad’s Memory Book.”  Each page give a prompt.  Beth hoped that my father would complete the book, as she wrote, “for your grandchildren.”

Pop completed two months, and at some point in March quit writing.  We all regret that he did, because there is so much family history and information that he could have provided.  My sisters and I did not know our father well in many ways; this book could have helped.

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

I see a lot of myself in this entry from January:

Pop’s words could be my own.
