They say close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades but it isn’t quite right. Close certainly counts where your Dad is concerned. Our birthdays were close together, we sat next to each other at the dinner table, and I felt close to you always. Still do.
So many memories surround you - trips to the dump, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, playing frisbee or cribbage, curling a grass shrimp around a fish hook. You made it all seem special. You introduced me to Edgar Allen’s Poe’s poetry and gave me my first book of short stories. The letters from the dog while I was at camp or college, the wordplay, silly songs like “A Frog he Would a Wooing, go” ~ all you. Making kites, making skim boards, making resin paperweights…making memories.
So glad that you were my Dad. Love you forever.
I had the good fortune to work for Dr. Edmison as his assistant for several years. He was instrumental in my moving to Colorado for graduate education and ultimately 30+ years of employment there. Although I did tire of hearing about the Big Red One, I learned much from him. I am truly saddened to learn of his passing. God Bless
