Happy Father's Day

I hope you and your dad will be able to have a good celebration today.

Rita Dad Myrna IMGSo many families live in different communities. Skype may be the main way many dads and kids see each other today.

I've been thinking about my dad a lot lately, especially when I've been planting my garden and working in my yard. My dad passed nearly 22 years ago.

We thought he would live a long time like his older brothers and sisters. My mom had diabetes so we thought she would leave us first. However, she outlived him 15 years.

My dad, a farmer, died from non-Hodgkins lymphome, which is linked to pesticide exposure.

You can be sure I don't use any pesticides in my yard.

Best wishes on Father's Day.
