What Would Dad Do?

Remember that scene in "It's a Wonderful Life" where a young George Bailey doesn't know what to do about Old Man Gower mixing the wrong formulation?
He looks up at the cigar poster that says "What Would Dad Do?".

There are times I miss my dad.
But he did his job.
I know what dad would do.
When I wish he were around, I realize he is.
I carry a part of him with me.


  1. What a truly beautiful sentiment, Ed. What a really great way to honor your father.
    "What would Dad do?" I pray for all children to have that feeling when they're in trouble. Sadly, that's not so much the case anymore.
    I had a dad like this; I'm glad you did, to honor, look up to, and want to emulate.
    Happy Father's Day, Ed.

  2. Happy Father's Day. It's still hard for me to walk past the Father's Day cards. Twenty years and it's still hurts.

  3. Z, this started out as a comment at your blog.
    Rita, That's a tribute to your dad.
    Thanks, NFO.
