To Jennifer Elliott From Daddy With Love, July 31, 1973. ❤️ There were callas in our front yard in Hacienda Heights, where I lived until I was about seven. This picture he painted in 1956 always reminded me of them. Their centers fascinated me and I wanted to pull them out and see if they tasted like a Chico stick or carrot. 😂 My father was a poet, preacher and painter. He loved me. His spirit has been closer to me the past few days than ever before since he died. I know he is looking out for me and guiding me. I love you, Daddy. I miss you so much today. I miss your smile, your laugh, your hugs, your hands. I’m glad you are not in any pain anymore.
More pics from our trip to Santa Fe. 🌵
Meow Wolf is very colorful! It was one of our stops while in Santa Fe. 🌈🏆🦋🕶⭐️🍭
Tomorrow, he gets braces. 😬 I’ve cherished his crooked boyhood smile - his snaggle-drac tooth grin. I’m gonna miss it. It is perfect to me. ❤️ #Oreos
Bandelier National Monument was the highlight of our trip to New Mexico. @BandelierNPS #Bandelier #Petroglyphs #PuebloPeople #NativeAmerica #Achumawi #parkpassport #npspassport #passportstamps #parkpassportstamped
The kids got @nationalparkservice Passports on our trip to New Mexico and were also sworn in as Junior Park Rangers. 🏕 They had to take a pledge to learn more and support the National Parks System. ⛰ Among our stops was The Bradbury Science Museum, the official museum of Los Alamos National Laboratory. ⚛️🔬 We loved Los Alamos. We visited the Manhattan Project National Park while we were there. The kids got one of three stamps for the Project. They will have to visit Washington State and Tennessee to get the other two to complete the seal. Very cool 😎 concept! @losalamosnatlab #npspassport #parkpassport #parkpassportstamped @bradburysciencemuseum #losalamos #nationallaboratory #manhattanproject #atomicbomb #atomicenergy #nuclearwar #nationalsecurity #secrettown #ProjectY #juniorparkranger #uranium #americathebeautiful🇺🇸 #America🗽

My sweet daughter Bridgette. She has made life a joy. Lord, protect her always. May she walk in light and trust in you all the days of her life.
When people see me out in public with Sullivan they always smile at me. I think maybe they can see how much we love each other. ❤️
The shamrock ☘️ that hung outside my mother’s bedroom window, now in my sunroom on this rainy June day. I miss you, Mom. Was so terrible losing you. I miss you most of all today. I wish you were here to hold my hand. ☘️ You were a wonderful mother and always there. I love you. ❤️
Trying to pick a color of stain for the kitchen and sunroom. The wood in the kitchen is maple, and it’s pine in the sunroom. Thoughts??
Robert McCollum is now Robert McCollum, SHRM-CP. Congrats, Bobby ❤️
Today, we bid farewell to Father Warren. He was there for us when my mom died on Christmas Eve, and nine days later, when I broke the news to the kids that their other Grandmother, Madgey, died unexpectedly. 💔 He followed us to the hospital and gave her last rites. ✝️ We will all miss him, but Bridgy most of all. She painted 🎨 this for him a few weeks ago during art camp. God bless you, Father Warren. Thank you for being there for us. We will always remember you in our prayers. 🙏
