I would like to take this time to tell those who do not know very well or may not remember the kind of person my father was. Some of my first memories of my father are from family and work picnics, he always enjoyed being outside eating and having fun with family and friends. I am sure my siblings have many fun memories of the 'Kelly' work picnics. Before I started school I remember my father and mother were very involved in my brother and sisters school activities and sports, I always took comfort in knowing that I had parents that took the time and cared about their children the way they did. However, I must say my father was not perfect and was a very stern man in his actions and words at times, so much so that I remember being about 5 or 6 years old and I wanted a nickel to go to the store for candy and was afraid to ask, but I got up the nerve to ask even though he was working on the dryer at the time and, of course, I got the story about money doesn't grow on trees and he needed money to get the dryer fixed for my mother, so I knew that I wouldn't be getting any candy that day, but as I turned to leave he got in his pocket and gave me a nickel. That was the kind of father I had. Being the youngest of four I watched my older siblings go through things that teenagers and young adults go through, some good and some not so good, but I watched how my father and mother handled every situation and with every situation some was handled well and some not so well, however I always saw the love they had for their children and the hope they had for them to have a good life. I learned a lot from my parents. My father worked hours that seemed like I didn't have much time with him, but as I look back I had many cherished times with him. He actually was the one that helped me learn to cook because at the time my mother worked so he did some of the cooking and I was at the age to learn and I especially remember when he was teaching me how to make gravy and the cup of flour mix fell into the pan and splattered gravy everywhere, of course, he didn't take it well at first, but I couldn't help from laughing and the next thing I knew we were both laughing and cleaning up the mess saying we were glad mom wasn't there to see it. I also have to say that my dad would not call my mother 'Mom', he always referred to her as 'Mum', that is an expressing that my husband and children still laugh about. My father had quite a way of pronouncing words such as color and crayon, he would use the word 'haint' a lot, and there are many other words for those that really knew him can recall and have a laugh over. I remember the day when Dad was with me, Bill, Sarah and Billy and he was trying to talk to us about a 'wedgies', however he kept calling it a 'squeegees' and it took us awhile to figure out what he was talking about and when we figured it out we laughed so hard we cried because of what he was calling it, so to this day it is no longer called a 'wedgy' but is referred to as a 'squeegee'. My father definitely enjoyed life and family and I am thankful that I had many years to enjoy them with him and to learn from him. This may not be a good thing, but he taught me to love the sunshine and we spent many days laying in the sun talking, laughing and complaining how hot it was, but we wouldn't get out of the heat. Dad was a hard worker and because of that he showed me, my husband, my children and siblings to be hard workers, however, he was not always the best handyman, many times it took the help of myself and/or my mother to help him out. I remember when kitchen faucets would need replaced whether it was at my house or his and even though he would need mine and Bill's help my father even at 80 years old would get down under the sink to help get the job done and he may have done some cussing, but we still would have a lot of laughs. There may have been some tough and bad times in my father's life, but he still loved to have some laughs. Those are the times that I will miss and remember. I cant even tell about all the vacations he loved to go on whether it was with my mother or my family, but I can say for sure that when my dad would go away with me, Bill, Sarah and Billy it was always a time of laughs and from what I have heard from my siblings they also have had quite the experiences and laughs also with our father. It was 10 years ago that my dad went with me, Bill and Billy to Florida and while we were there Bill saw two things happen to Dad that he says to this day are the funniest things he has ever seen. First of all, let me explain. my father was a very vain man who always cared about how he looked and believe it or not, he liked to make a good impression, so now that you know that, it will help you appreciate what happened. We were at the baseball park and, of course, I was taking pictures, but Bill was looking after my father and there was a little wooden bench that he and my dad sat down on and they were talking, and then Bill said he decided to stand up, but when he did Dad must have been to close to the edge and too heavy that when Bill got up the bench flew up and Dad just rolled on the ground and Bill said Dad hopped up real quick and looked around hoping no one saw him, however they did, and Bill was laughing so hard that it took him a minute before he could even ask if he was okay. Bill still gets me laughing when he talks about Dad rolling on the ground. The other funniest thing Bill and Billy both saw, and it happened the same weekend, we were at the beach this time and my father was sitting in a wooden lounge chair, just sitting there and enjoying the sun and ocean, talking to Bill, Billy and me and eating a sandwich when all of a sudden as Dad went to take a bite of his sandwich a seagull hovered right in front of him as if it was going to take his sandwich and it startled Dad and he freaked out and started cussing at the seagull and, of course, we laughed so hard that after Dad calmed down he was laughing because we were still laughing because we couldn't believe what just happened. Even though my father was quick to be snappy and complain, he was just as quick to smile and laugh and I will miss him and all the fun and laughs that we have had over the years. My father was not perfect, but he was the perfect father for me and was the perfect father-in-law to husband, Bill, and most definitely the perfect grandfather to my children, Sarah and Billy. We love him and will miss him, but will always have the memories.
