Dedication to Dad

Two days of hard labor, getting the yard in shape for Memorial Day Weekend.
No company coming to enjoy it with...just a tradition passed down by my Dad, to have the yard mowed and trimmed, flowers planted and flag flying. There was usually always a picnic planned, games to play, and a bonfire by the patio by the end of the day. My dad put many hours of hard work into the yard, it was his pride and joy, and we all enjoyed it very much!

Today I sit back and relax and enjoy my own yard and think of good memories of my Dad.
28 years ago today we lost him to a sudden heart attack. Every Memorial Day when everyone else is honoring those who served our country, I am remembering my hero.
A Father, a Brother, A Son, and a Veteran....
I love him and miss him very much

Ron Tiede
January 30, 1930 - May 30, 1982

For 28 years now, I've planted up these special planters and take them to the cemetery. It's always so beautiful (will post pictures later today).

If Dad were here, we'd be playing horse shoes now.
