Things My Father Said
Things My Father Said

I think about my father all the time. He was one special guy. Fiercely loyal to his family, smart, honest, and hard working. I think about how our lives, and in particular my mom’s, would be different if he were still with us.


And, I think about the things that were quirky and unique to him.


He danced in a special way that as a family we often imitated. We would be at a party with music playing and someone would yell “Do the Poppy”. He loved that. He saw good in the world. I remember he drove me to take the bar exam up at the piers on the westside of Manhattan. As we drove through what was then a seedy part of the lower east side, he noticed some scantily clad women calling out to cars in the street and commented – “Look, there must be a dance troupe in the neighborhood.”


He had sayings and shared wisdoms. He often shared a simple statement that can only come with years of experience – “This too shall pass.” These days, I think about that wisdom all the time.


What did your father say all the time that has stuck with you?

 

And of course, Happy Father's Day!

    My memories of my father are distant. He passed away in 1984 and it jolted our lives with the unexpected outcome. Of course my mom who was a "house wife" (a phrase not used much anymore) from the time she and her 1st kid in 1960, was devastated. So life was sure different without him. I do remember his favorite peanut butter on rye bread with bananas. Not my kind of thing, but that memory sticks.

    Sounds like quite a man and DAD!
    I was lucky to have a father who would drop anything to help anyone in the family without delay.

    If you don't do it now...you'll probably won't do it.
