To the Father of my Children


You taught our children the important lessons of life.
You taught them that ...


"Go ye into all the world", was a personal command!




"Teaching all nations" ,was our responsibility.



"Baptizing ,in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" was rewarding.




To love America!!




A true man knows how to nurture.



Setting a Godly example for others is a way of life.



Christian compassion is sharing the love of Christ with those in pain.




Life is an adventure, best lived to the fullest!



Everything is better with Coke!



One need not always take the easiest path in this life!




Comfort is over rated!


Getting dirty can be fun!



Not to take life too seriously!









To love their mother.




Helping others is not always easy!




Family is important!




How to look good in a suit!!!

What a lovely tribute to your husband.

That picture of your son and his bride is ADORABLE! I love it! It looks like it should be a magazine cover or something.

Pam said...

Oh Rita! This is your best post ever! Much better than all that political stuff. I knew your Father's Day post would out do mine. The photos of the bride and groom drinking the bottled Cokes is priceless! Love it! Next you might need to explain why they had their photo taken in a shopping cart! LOL

Pam said...

Tori said...

A beautiful tribute to the father of your children! You have had a great adventurous life.

The comment about Naomy resembling Sophia Loren made me chuckle. Agustin told me the same thing a couple of months ago!

Happymama said...

That was a lovely post! I have to say Naomy in the shopping cart in her wedding dress caught me off guard. But what a sweet tribute to your children's father.
