Hello all. Just a quick blog and an excuse to upload a picture of my dad and myself. My daughter, wife and I visited my folks at the memory care home yesterday on Easter. I go visit them every Sunday no matter what and take my daughter. It is always tough to visit but we look for the bright spots. One blessing is that my daughter still has a strong connection with my folks. She is not shy at all and will play with them non-stop. She has visited every weekend since my mom moved in with dad. She played blocks with grandma and grandpa yesterday for about 30 minutes straight. Dad seems much less agitated when he is playing with her. He lights up. My daughter and I make a day of it and usually grab daddy/daughter lunch on the way back from "grandma and grandpa's new home."

Couple of weeks ago I visited and had on my Georgia Tech pullover (I'm a GT alumni). Dad saw me walk-in with that GT shirt on and immediately went to his closet to pull out a GT hat. That was totally cool. I gave him that hat several years ago. We clicked a pic of that visit and I wanted to share. Thanks be to God.
