Father's Day Tribute - Creative Monday Blog Hop

        In many countries, Sunday, June 16, 2013 is celebrated as Father's Day.  I wish all fathers a Happy Father's Day. If your father is no longer alive as is the case with my father I hope you have many wonderful memories to hold on to.  Since I started this blog I have shared posts about my father who died when I was only 13 years old. I will always remember him as a kind, jovial and loving father. I especially treasure the values and attitudes that he instilled in his children. He always thought of others and died serving in his role as an elected Parish Councillor in my parish, St. Mary. Jamaica.
    As I reminisce about the years that I had with my father, Harold Haughton-James, these words best describe him.

Hi Judy,
I am touched by your post. I lost my father when I was 23 and the loss is forever with me. He was my best buddy as well as my father. I was always a daddy's girl. Thanks for the party. Have a wonderful week.
