FOR DAD

This is for my much-flawed but lovely, flamboyant, generous and above all, kind Dad, who died 36 years ago today. There has not, in all that time, been a day when I have not thought of him and missed him.

Here he is charming the ladies



and on his wedding day:



And here's a song he loved. It was popular not long before he died:

Nat King Cole - This Is All I Ask

I know what you mean! I never stop thinking of my dad! He is buried in Sicily, Termini Imerese. I think he's happy wherever he is now!

Thank you, James. I appreciate that. Hi, Lucia. Thank you for your empathy. I'm sure he is.
