When I was around 12 or so My Father told me "one day Baby,a man will come along and break your heart".This was a direct reaction from my older sister's seperation and adventual divorce.Then he added like every Father Would,Me and your Brothers will break his knee caps.Breaking of the knees is a recurring theme in Boston,its better then cement shoes I guess.
My Father's "Anniversary" is coming up.10 years he'll be gone for.It's also my Father In Laws Birthday.Yes,You heard right.It's a weird thing.Happy Birthday Mr.Marco! I miss you Daddy.In some way I can see my Father giggling about it.not that he was mean,just a big jokester.Kinda like never forget I could.Most of my blogs are about my dad,he was unique.I know everyone is,but unlike my friends fathers my dad stood out.He never went beyond the 5th grade,yet could come up with an invention in no time.needed a math problem? no problem for him he was a human calculator,spelling problems? goto him.He was quick with a joke or some crazy little fact.loved crossword puzzles and old-time radio.had the best candy stash in the city.and made the best biscuits in the north!
The absolute biggest apple pies you'd ever see.He was the cook in the family,and an amazing one too.
He was a Husband, A Father to 8,FIL to 6,Grandfather to 20,great-grandfather to 1.My parents were married in 1955,and had been together since 1951.
Oh yes,back to that little break your heart quote.When he was dying,I asked him do you remember what you said about a man breaking my heart? he said yes,I replied,"I just never knew it would be you".I miss him all the time.It's so weird,You always believe your parents will live forever.It's crushing when they don't.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful blog. You dad sounds so wonderful. I wish I could have met him. I am like you, as you write about your father, I write a lot about my mother, Susy. It IS the most crushing thing I think when we lose our parents. It is just so hard to realize that they are mortal like everyone else.
