Love You Dad Scroll Saw Pattern.

It's almost Father's Day. I lost my father many years ago but I still think of him all the time. I was ten years old when he passed away. I wish I had one more chance to tell him how much I love him. He always let me know he loved me. He was a great dad.

He was born in 1911. My grandparents were farmers so all the sons had to work hard. He grew up with a strong work ethic. He worked hard every day until the day he passed. That day was the first day of work he missed in years if ever. 

He worked for Mr. Kresge the founder of what became K-mart. He managed several of the K-mart food stores. Some of you may remember that in the early days most K-marts had grocery stores attached. We would move to a city and open a new K-mart food store. After it got running well we would move to the next one. We moved a lot. In my life, I have lived in over 50 locations.

My dad worked a lot of hours but he always had time for me. I would even go to work with him and stock the shelves or aggravate the other employees. I was stocking shelves when I was 5 or 6 years old. I remember always wanting to show him I did a good job. I'm sure I actually did a terrible job. 

On this Father's Day, I hope you have the opportunity to tell your dad you love him. I may not be able to tell my dad face to face but I will still spend a few minutes alone letting him know I still think of him all the time.
