Would have been my old man’s 86th birthday.
He departed four years back.
Lives on in my mind, our hearts, memories,
When I’m trying to solve math problems at work, logic questions,
When I think about fishing, or the great outdoors over all. Or basketball, or hockey, or tennis, or golf,
Every day I live as a parent I think, “What would Howie do?”
Or jazz music, peanut butter tortilla roll-ups, charcoal BBQ, Scotch,
