"Thanks for the Memories"

by Bob
(Minneapolis area)

My dear father worked on a city work crew for over 25 years. His hours in the winter depended on the weather. He would plow snow and salt the streets.
But, that was his work life. When not at work he devoted himself to coaching his kids soccer, baseball and basketball teams. He continued on long after we were adults to coach other kids.
At his retirement party we gathered as many of those kids as possible. One by one they told their story about how my father influenced their lives. Many went on to coach their kids teams.
My brother and sisters did not even speak - although we had planned to. It was great!
