Fathers Day

men of song father's dayMy Dad’s Fathers Day events began at our church where he joined a choir that sang during the morning service. My husband Dave is part of The Men of Song group and their director asked each choir member to invite their sons, grandsons, fathers and fathers in law to perform with them during the Sunday service. Since our older son and grandsons live in another province and our younger son was traveling for his job, Dave was glad my Dad could join him to sing. The intergenerational choir sounded great and got hearty applause from their audience.

The recent death of Dave’s Dad was a good reminder that our fathers won’t always be with us and so we need to celebrate their important role in our lives when we can.
