Fishing with the Grandkids

Recommended Posts

Fishing with the Grandkids 
These trying times can be very stressful. We are being tested both physically and mentally. Physically we stay at home as much as possible. Mentally it helps a great deal to rekindle fond memories of better times.
Better times such as 'Fishing with the Grandkids'.
For a loving husband, father, parenthood is one of the most precious gifts imaginable. I know, we raised three daughters. Three daughters who followed in Daddy's/Mom's footsteps.
Thelma, my wife of 39 years, taught our daughters how to bass fish in our well-stocked pond:

The girls grew up swimming & bass fishing in our back yard.
All of a sudden, thanks to our oldest, Dee, we are grandparents:

Like Momma, like Daughter, Danielle:

Danielle loved to bass fish; she was very good at it. Will never forget when she thought she was fighting a big bass. It turned out to be a turtle. She immediately threw her cane pole down and started crying.
Danielle, still interested in bass fishing, suddenly is a beautiful teen age girl:

Today Danielle is a beautiful woman and mother. Her husband, Brandy, and their children love to bass fish.

On a more solemn note.
Betty, our youngest daughter (L), Thelma, my wife, and Barbara, our second born.

Betty is now doing her fishing with Mom, my wife, in heaven. Barbara has cancer.
Please remember us in your prayers.
This is Barb's daughter, Francisca. She needs her mom.
