A great read from beginning to end! You've given us a glimpse of a kind, God-fearing man, a hero of the war, a hero at both fishing for pike and souls, and a hard working family man. I admire him, and don't even know him. Thanks for this great story...and I think the Epitaph "gone fishing" very appropriate. Kudos!
Beautifully done. I could hear the admiration and love you hold for your father...a touching piece.
A wonderful, delightful read! Thanks for sharing this!
Touching story. What a legacy to leave you with. Thanks for sharing it. It definitely warms the heart.
Really enjoyed this. Good piece.
Tender, beautiful and well written. Good job. You were so fortunate to have a father like him. You have a lot to live up to.
"Gone fishing" sounds like the perfect epitaph for this fisher of men. I love your story. Such a wonderful heritage of memories for a child to know this type of home. God bless you and your writing a hundred fold.
