Title Memories of My Father
Description 4. Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves. 5. Talk in terms of the other man's interests. 6. Make the other person feel important--and do it sincerely. Daddy loved to see his wife and girls look pretty. He was complimentary about our hair and dresses. I remember a preen taffeta formal 1 had that Daddy thought was beautiful-He often remarked about how lovely I looked. Then he would add, 'Now put a big smile on your face and you'll be perfect." We knew how much Daddy loved Mother, They went hand in hand in all that needed doing. Daddy would tell us bow out standing she was and said she made his life complete. He loved her cooking. He always said she looked beautiful. He knew she could so anything. They were the perfect pair. Mother would pop corn over the fireplace or make fudge while Daddy cracked black walnuts to put in it. We would play for Daddy's enjoyment and he would say that his life was a "heaven on earth." What a wonderful Christmas we had in 1944. We came with our new baby boy a few days before the holiday. Mother and Daddy adored the baby. We spent most evenings in front of the fireplace eating our dinners there. Because 1 wanted to have popcorn and black walnuts, we enjoyed those treats. We were together on the rug before the fire and everyone was so happy until Daddy suddenly said, "This is my last Christmas. Next year I won't be here. What a wonderful life I've had. I love you all so very much." That was Daddy's last Christmas He died two weeks later. Daddy I can hear him say-Speak to everyone-don't neglect a dog or bird. Don't wait for introducing--give all a friendly word. A smile you give, returns two fold And friends are worth their weight in gold. Don't miss a chance to greet a child Their smiles and laughs are heav'n inspired. They love you too For every friendly gesture that you do. Don't be afraid to help someone. Don't rest until your neighbor's work is done. Don't do just what you're asked to so. Its extra tasks bring success to you. 81
