My father would have been 99 this Father’s Day. Unfortunately, he didn’t even get half way to that point. We lost him much to soon to a sudden brain aneurism about six years before medical science and treatment would reach the point of successful and recovery. We all miss him, but he missed the opportunity to know, love and spoil all his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved kids, and he loved him.

I didn’t get the chance to really know him,

But he really knew me.


About Robert Edler

... a somewhat unknown and/or imaginary actor, writer, director, producer, photographer, friend, brother, uncle and all round good fellow that you really should get to know because he lives with that most glamorous fourpaw Mademoiselle Renee. (Mlle. Renee for short)

  1. What a wonderful tribute to your Father. I love the photos because I’m from the same era as you are and smiled as I looked at the clothing and surroundings. Happy Father’s Day to your Dad from your blogging friends. 🙂

  2. No matter how many years pass, we never stop missing the good ones, do we?
