I know I am not alone in saying that our blogging friends, especially those we've blogged with for years, become like family. There is love, concern, and true friendship.
Today, I lost one of my dearest blog family members, DAD.
Somehow, DAD came across my blog, most likely due to his love of shelties. He once had a dear sheltie named Scottie. DAD read my blog, fell in love with Misty and Oreo, and our friendship began. That friendship spread throughout my family as well.
DAD was most likely the oldest blogger out there. At 90 somethin', he was still writing a post every day (except Sundays). His blog is named http://tomatogardeningwithdad.blogspot.com/ , but believe me, it wasn't all about tomatoes.
Every morning, I'd drink a cup of coffee with DAD. I'd read his words of wisdom, laugh at some funny stories, and click on some amazing links.
DAD was all about spreading smiles and kindness, reminding us that each day is precious, don't waste it, and to always live for others.
DAD kept things in perspective for all of us.
DAD, you will be missed, but your gentle messages will live on in our hearts.
