Flashback Friday

I was inspired by Mrs. Bettie Rocker's post today about her father. Her father has passed away and was laid to rest in Arlington Cemetery, so I feel like we're kindred spirits (since that's where my Dad is too).

(Me and Dad, probably around 1986)

(I'm probably around 2 here, so maybe 1988)

(AH! I'm probably 9?)

(HOLY AWKWARD FAMILY PHOTO! Bad tweeze job and a perm. Oh my.)

(Me and Dad at the Justice of the Peace, 2004)

I miss you Dad.

Flashback Friday Button


  1. I havent been able to visit Arlington in years. If you go, look him up and say hi for me since they are both in the columbariums.

  2. I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my dad when I was 11 years old. It's never easy to lose a parent.

  3. What a great post, Jess. Gotta love awkward family photos (is there any other kind?).

  4. :(

    But they're all such wonderful pictures.

  5. We will never lose our memories, and thats what keeps me going everyday. Glad you have pictures and memories to share with us.

  6. We have an awkward family portrait too. I think you have to don't you??

  7. Awww...great photos. I had to kinda giggle at your awkward family photo comment.

  8. you and your dad are the cutes!

    You're right.. gotta love awkward family photos. have you seen that website?

    Sending you big hugs! You are so strong, and your daddy would be so proud of you!

  9. You have your dad's eyes I think and for sure Wyatt has your dad's eyes. Beautiful eyes.

    You lost him so recently. Oh my dear *BIG HUGS*

    I lost my dad in 2006 to lung and brain cancer. I still cannot believe he is gone. I'd give anything to pick up the phone and just talk to him.

  10. What a sweet post. What a sweet daughter you are!

    Great photos! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Oh no another sad one, I just read hers before yours :( So sorry for your loss. He looks like a sweet man.

  12. oh jess. im so so so sorry you lost your dad. i love all these pictures though. the first one is my fave. he was able to meet wyatt, right? you look JUST like your dad. i look like my dad too if you take away his mustache we have the exact same face. its kinda scary.

  13. Such a great flashback - thanks for sharing a little bit of your Dad with us. It was nice "meeting" him.

  14. Jess all of these comments are so sweet and very very accurate.
