6.5.13 … the important stuff …

Yesterday, 6.4, was the tenth anniversary of the death of my dad.  My sister and I, along with her husband, had an early lunch at Mary Macs, one of my Dad’s favorite restaurants.  We commented on how much he would have loved seeing my brother’s name up on the banner above our table.  My dad was a stock broker/bond peddler.  He loved people.  He loved stories.  We laughed at stories of  my dad;  how he did things and said things and retold the stories until they were funnier and better than the original.  One of our favorites is how he was discovered at Mary Macs … as a model.  He did print ads for Life of Virginia, Honest Face, Harland Checks and a favorite  ad for french fries where he got paid as much for his “sexy”  hand as for his face.  Edward Lindsey lived life to the fullest and he shared that life  … He got the important stuff.

The important stuff  is sometimes just letting people know they are special and telling others …

We closed our day with a visit to the cemetery.  I realized that it is nice to have a place to connect.  It doesn’t have to be a grave, but it it can be.  We danced at his spot …
