My Father-in-law left this world on a Sunday afternoon in 1999. It happened to be Valentine’s Day. I cannot think of a man more lovely than he, to remember on this auspicious day. He brought his family much joy because he planted such good into the hearts and minds of his children. With the help of his wife, together they raised their family with the kind of warmth and love that many only dream of having.
So when I saw this photograph of pink, happy, heart-shaped cookies, it made me immediately see his laughing eyes and recall way he laughed. He was a happy man and I shall always hold a special place in my heart for him.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
