My a Daddy's birthday

Grace and peace
    My daddy, Maurice Leroy Giltz was born today in 1910.   The year Haley's Comet came.  He died in 1983. A year before it returned.  He had always said he wanted to see it.   So I saw it for him 6 times and places.  I made sure his grandchildren saw it too...though they only have vague memory of having seen it.   Mary Chapin Carpenter sings When Haley's Came To Jackson.  It always brings tears  to my heart...but sweet ones.
    I miss him still.

God abides
