Delightful—and I'm sure dad remembers it EXACTLY how it happened.
Oh, what a sweet story. You've managed to be sentimental without being mushy; not an easy thing to do. The humor was clever, too. What a fun read!

What a beautiful story, and you wove all the elements in in perfect measure.
I'd love to hear your father tell this tale in person.

Thanks for sharing this family history. So glad for you. Great writing as well.

Great flow and pace! I could feel the emotion in this--well done! I ,too, would love to see it done from your dad's point of view.
