A Tribute to my Dad

Yesterday our family experienced one of life's most wonderful moments: the birth of my newest grandchild, Shiloh Hesed Hache. But yesterday evening was bittersweet as my father, Robert LeRoy McNally passed from this life. He was one of a kind, the most wonderful father, grandfather & great-grandfather. He will be sorely missed.

Here's a picture of Mom & Dad around 1970.

I am sorry for your loss. June 19th of this year will mark the 23rd anniversary of my dad's passing. It will also mark the 23rd birthday of my only nephew who was born 4 hours after our dad passed away. We have always celebrated the date as a happy occasion ... the arrival of new life and the subsequent growth of a wonderful nephew as well as the journey of our dad to his heavenly reward. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
