Three years ago today, my Daddy went to heaven. He loved Diet Dr. Pepper, hand lotion, candles, Old Spice aftershave, yellow legal writing pads, cigars, Baby Ruth candy bars, Lance’s cheese crackers, cherry-scented car fragrance, Charlie Pride, coconut anything, pecan pie, the mountains, his children, Jesus and Earnie.
One of Daddy’s favorite songs was Moon River. I imagine he and Mother walking in heaven as Andy Williams gives them their own personal concert…
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waiting, round the bend
My Huckleberry Friend, Moon River, and me.
Here’s a re-post of that day’s blog entry — titled To The Moon Raymond.
