Happy Fathers Day

Today is Father's Day a day that like Mother's day has it's origins in North Central West Virginia. Father's Day had their first observance took place in 1908 to honor the 210 Fathers that were killed in the 1907 Monongah Mine explosion.

The picture I posted covers two people, my Father and my Grandfather. Both men were very influential in developing me to the person I am today, and both of them are missed today.

My Grandfather raised me until I was 13 and the time of his passing, my Father was my rock of security up until the day he died. I owe both of them a lot and am very Thankful that I had two wonderful men to influence me in my life.

They are both missed and honored every day of my life.

Happy Father's Day
