Frank and Dennis...

Frank and Dennis

I was once asked who I would choose as the one person above all others, living or dead, to have lunch with. Without hesitation, I said I would pick Frank.

Frank was my paternal grandfather. I have mentioned him before in my blog. He died when my dad, Dennis, was two years old. His wife, Ardith, was expecting their second child when Frank died. That child was born a girl, Charlene. So you see, not only did I never meet him, neither did his own daughter. My dad really has no memory of him either.

If asked who would you choose to have lunch with, many would choose some fantastic figure in history, Einstein, Gandhi, Jesus, any number of unreachable people. But for me, Frank would be my choice.

I hope you had a beautiful Father’s Day, dear friends. For those of you whose dad is no longer here, I hope you have some wonderful memories to cherish…xo
