Photo Friday: A Tribute to DAD.

I saw on The Hollie Rogue blog that she does a "Photo Friday." I decided to copy her haha. I think that she usually takes pictures that day, but I am just going to talk about some older pictures.

If you don't know, my father passed away in 2007, when I was 16. He was an AMAZING guy. I know that people say that about everyone that has died, but seriously, he was. His laughter was infectious. He had the greatest personality of anyone I have ever met. It was hard to be bummed out when you were around him, because he was so joyful and full of life. I miss him more than I can express in writing. He was my best friend in the whole world.

My dad was very unusual, but in a good way. He was the type that thought the weirder, the better. He would always say, "nerds are people too." And he would try to be different. I loved him for that. He was so brave. He didn't care what anyone thought of him. I wouldn't have the guts to pull off half of the fashionable things that he did lol. For example: his hair. Everyone knows my dad for his hair. He was blessed with naturally curly hair, that he passed down to me and my sister (thanks a lot! I hate my curly hair). Anyways.. my dad had cornrows at one time. He also had dread locks. At one time his head was completely bald, like shaved with a razor. At other times he'd rock an afro. His hair had been almost every color of the rainbow. When he died, it was purple.

Here are a few pictures of the best dad in the world.


He and I when I was 15.


Wasn't he a stud in the 80's? haha.


I think I was around 2 or 3 in this picture.


He loved his SnowBird hat from Kelly! :)
