My Dad and Mom always showed much affection

Some day
 I will tell the whole "Story" of how my dad  
became a benedictine Monk
 but today I just want to say
 I Love Him 
and I am so Very Proud of My Dad!

Happy Father's Weekend Everyone!
Make it a good one

Great photos, it looks like you had a wonderful childhood! I'll be interested in hearing about how your Dad became a monk.
