Your dad was a handsome man, Sandra. And you look a lot like him. This is a loving tribute to him, I'm sure he loved you very much! Have a great weekend!

I remember that post! You really look like your dad, and I guess you have heard that more than once. I love the way you made that fall arrangement on the bible.

I just read the story of your father. This is an amazing story. So many children of that time did the right thing, quit school to take care of the family. Tells a lot about how those people lead their life, and how they relate to others. Very nice post. You look exactly like your dad!

Curious about the bridge. Were you afraid to go across the wiggly bridge?

I had no idea your dad was a minister. My heart goes out to you, I know you must miss him.

I like reading about where you grew up and that vid about mt folks. I have seen several movies like that about the history of mt people and the songs.

We're all just grass..I do remember this a little but yet forgot much and it made me cry.. love all the old photos!! You do look like your dad and I too love that song. There are many versions too I guess. Wow, thanks, a very special tribute! My dad's is on the 28th. I get redundant and think I made him older than he was before (lol) 1916..my husband does that to me!
I'm going to make dinner (will catch up tonight) (Hugs)

Dear Sandra, your father was a handsome man. You resemble him much. This is lovely tribute to him. I like the song and the photos from the slide show.

I don't think the sting of a loved one's passing ever gets better. I think it just gets pushed down deeper. Warm thoughts.

So nice! I see a lot of you in him and vice versa!
