    My dad was so much fun when Lori and I were young. He would give us a ride on his MC, after pleading to him over and over. I remember rabbit’s in our little red brick home that dad brought us one Easter. Lori and I screamed with excitement. One day he was peeling potatoes for mom and I was sitting and watching him on the sofa on Lockwood. Dad had my full attention for He was carving out a turtles and other animals to make fries. There was the best time when he was our horse on the floor bucking Lori and I softly off. Dad always had a catchy phrase he like to reuse. I can be 4 years old again and hear my dad ready to leave the house, begging to go with him. He would say every time, ” not this time I gotta go check on a truck load of smoke”.
    I will always be your girl, Dad. The happy feeling that this transition give me is knowing that mom, and Lori have surrounded you with love. So celebrate your home comming, after all, we were spirits first.. Ilove you Dad, always Tammy
