A beautiful memorial to my dad was erected today. Right in my front yard, no less.

It has brought with it a mixed bag of emotions. Pride. Sorrow. Wonder. Loss. Gratitude.

I think it’s a lovely addition to the farm.

And a lovely reminder of the people, the sacrifices and the hard work that has gone into this farm. We are forever grateful. And we will never forget.

Thanks, Aunt Nancy and Uncle Jim. Your memorial is a fitting tribute not only to Dad, but to our whole family.
