The Sacrifices He Made

Tommy J. Wilson
My father never much liked having his picture taken.  I finally found this one Gina took in 1988.  He was down in the Mississippi River Bottoms where he farmed, like generations of Wilsons before him.  He loved working the land.  But as the family grew, he took a job in Paducah to make ends meet. 
I miss you, Daddy.  Words cannot express how much I appreciate the sacrifices you made for us.

Your Dad was a wonderful man... Miss my Dad too. Big family, no complaining, just did what had to be done and most of the time with a smile or joke.

Thanks so much for your comment. (But I wish I knew who you were, so I could address you by name! :)
