Honoring Male Lineage on Father’s Day

October 25, 1913 – December 26, 1984
You can’t find my Dad on Google, even though, in his time, he was active and well-known behind the scenes in my hometown politics — especially among the Polish population.
Today, I think of how proud my Dad would be and how much he would love his grandson, b!X, to whom I managed to give birth on my father’s birthday. (That’s them, together, celebrating one of them.) And his great-grandson? (His amazing granddaughter’s offspring — that’s him in the bottom corner.) Well, my Dad would be beside himself with delight.
Today, Dad, I’m remembering the standards for integrity, compassion, and generosity that your example set for the whole family. I wish that my grandson would have had a chance to know you.
