In memory of my Dad, Hal

It's been 19 years since my Dad passed away and yet I still miss him like crazy. He loved the summer time - swimming, grilling, clam bakes, puttering around in the yard, enjoying an ice cold beer on a really hot day. So it seemed fitting that we celebrated Father's Day today with my in laws in a way that my own Dad and Mom would have loved - a simple backyard BBQ. As I stood out by the pool today, grilling up our burgers, I felt really close to my Dad. Many were the times that he stood in a similar fashion, rain or shine, huddled next to a grill cooking our food. Knowing that I am his living legacy in all that I am and all that I do makes me proud - even if at the time I am just making hamburgers.

I loved you Dad ... Happy Father's Day!

No little rain shower would keep my Dad from his grilling duty!
