3: 1941 The war in Europe continued to dominate world affairs but a new threat was growing which would soon involve America as the Japanese caused a threat Asia in the Pacific and preparations for war continued. The British Prime Minister Winston Churchill addressed the joint session of congress asking for help in the form of Arms . The US still continued as normal with 2 great movies produced that year that would stand the test of time "Citizen Kane" and "Dumbo". After many years where parents had decided what teenagers wore a new revolution was happening where teenagers became fashion conscious , also drive in Movies and drive in fast food were growing in popularity. On December 7th 1941 the US was attacked by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii more than 2400 American servicemen were killed that day and America entered the WAR . And with neutrality ended some 950 tanks were sent to Britain together with food, trucks, guns and ammunition.

4: A time to celebrate.. My love, This special day has been put aside to honor you and let you know what you mean to each of us. You and I know what is in our hearts for one another. We started our journey as teenagers together a little more than 50 years ago. What was once 1st love has turned into a lifetime journey. There were those first dates and parties. You escorted me to my high school proms and with friends danced the night away. Within two years we were married and a year later started our family. 1st came Greg, a tiny little boy with huge blue eyes. He grew into a mischievous little boy. Always busy playing with cars and trucks. I do believe his 1st words might have been “rheum rheum” as he pushed his cars around the floor. We didn't realize it at 1st but our love grew to new heights as he became a part of that special circle of love we shared. Could our love become greater? Two years after Greg, Diana came along. She was our chatterbox and so full of life. Remember, if we were traveling at night we would put her in the front seat between us and she kept us awake talking all the way home. Ahh, another blessing was to come along 1 years later. Nancy was our hug bug. Big brown eyes and soft brown hair. She loved being packed around and hugged all the time.

5: "Being a parent means never having a minute... yet always making a moment." - Michael Nolan | Life moved along as they grew up. We saw them through the school years, sports, song girls and horses as they pursued their interests and eventually a new chapter was Beginning. Could life be any fuller?

6: Dad~ There is so much I could say about you that one particular memory is hard to choose and would never come close to defining all that you have given me in my life. There are many memories and lessons that are special and have made me into the person I am now. As I try to think about events in my life that involve you, I mostly think about how your unplanned lessons have shaped my outlook on life and built my foundation as a human being. As parents we never really know how our interactions with our children are going to help them, or do we necessarily realize that it's the quiet moments, experiences or discussions that shape who they become. I do know that the person I am has a lot to do with our relationship and that many of our shared moments have built the cornerstones of who I am today. So many memories I hold dear to me. Some from childhood, others more recent. Some funny, some sad but all invaluable.... My first memory of you, is of you walking me in the hallway as a very young child or toddler. For some reason, I was crying, I couldn't sleep.... teething or something, but I vaguely remember you holding and comforting me... I remember vividly my wet tears dampening your soft, white t-shirt, as I laid my head on your shoulder...I could swear you were quietly singing "Go to sleep, Go to sleep little doggy!" it must have worked..:) I also recall your Pepper Soup! HOT! I learned to never invite friends over to have lunch, especially when you have never tried what your dad is cooking! :) I don't think little Jeffrey Morris ever ate with us again! I still can't believe you made preschoolers eat that! Of course, I can't forget my first real bike. I found it under our Christmas tree one year. It was in my favorite color "magenta" no less with a bell and even a white basket with daisies on it! You spent many hours putting it together and then showing me how to ride. Now look at me..Riding up mountains with No training wheels! :) About that same age, I had a loose tooth. I remember you promised me ice cream if I would let you try a home remedy to extract the tooth. You also promised me " The Tooth Fairy" would come that night! I agreed wholeheartedly... The next thing I knew you were tying a string around my tooth and tethering it to a doorknob. I stood there innocently, not sure what to expect, and then you let my big brother quickly slam the door! Ouch!!!! I did get the ice cream which helped sooth my painful, bleeding gum.....BUT FYI... that quarter under my pillow was not fair payment! Lesson #1.... Life is not fair and it can hurt...get over it!

7: I also remember Nancy and I sitting on your shoulders on the couch. We would dip a comb into a big, pink cup filled with water. We would then take turns stying your hair....Yes, Dad..... I remember you once had lots of hair....you even let us put barrettes in it! Lesson #2....Don't be modest! Haha! Even earlier than that, I recall standing on your big feet and holding on to your big hands -- you would walk me around the room as I held on... Lesson #3.... Never let go, you might get stepped on by someone with bigger feet then you! I also remember, and notice to this day, what handsome and strong hands you have.... always well manicured, even with all the work they have seen. This, you should know, is something I look for in a man. They must have good hands! Yes, I'm serious! :)Hmmm, what else, well, .......Lesson #4....DO NOT SWEAR! SOAP DOES NOT TASTE GOOD! (as you know I have not said a bad word since! :) Over the years, you instilled in us a strong work ethic. You taught me the value of hard work by watching you put in long hours, always successful in providing for our family. You made sure we were shown the power of our own hard work by allowing us (or making us) perform hard labor ;) by pulling weeds, scrubbing toilets, or crawling under spider infested houses to help you fix something underneath! Another time, I remember sitting on 4x4's for hours as you pulled us across the yard so you could level the ground beneath us and build our first pool (FYI...Dad... there might have been an easier way for you to accomplish this). We learned the value of a dollar by ironing your shirts (10 cents each) or plucking large green worms (5 cents each) from the tomato garden. Those same gardens you taught us to tend, we enjoyed and appreciated the fruits (or veg's) of our labor. I also remember one day, along with some neighborhood kids, we helped you build and plant a vegetable garden. Since we all worked so hard, you rewarded us with an all-expenses paid trip to the drive-in that summer night! Fun! Because of this I've never been afraid to get my hands dirty and am rewarded and fulfilled by my accomplishments. Lesson # 6...You have to work hard for what you want!You also taught me to be a good athlete through your patience in the yard, throwing balls to us girls! Darn! We were good! You were always there to cheer Greg, Nancy and I on....remember the year we played on a boys football team and Greg's undefeated baseball team?!! Almost better are my skills as a fisherwoman due to the many hours camping, RVing or even more recently, fishing on the pond together.

8: Great moments all of them. Most importantly, you have always held my hand even if you weren't. You have stood beside me in my darkest hours, alleviating my fears, encouraging me in silence and through your unswerving love.... I always know you are there--No need to question, no need to doubt, true unconditional love is what you and Mom give. Our family, no doubt, is always there for one another, will always be there for each other....easily built on your example as parents. God knows I've made my share of mistakes and sometimes I have chose to take difficult paths in life....AND you have let me! No matter what road I've taken you both have always been there when I needed you. Never to say I told you so, but to help me find my way and steer me back to what is right for me without pushing. Your words of wisdom and advice are always valued. I always know that I can count on you to guide me and help me find my way. I may not always take your advice immediately but that's because I need to prove to myself I tried my way, whether it's right or wrong. I know all my decisions or experiences, good or bad, make me stronger. I do know you appreciate and are proud that I sometimes take the harder roads. Yes, we know I can be stubborn...BUT anyone can take the easy road, and as far as I'm concerned that's never any fun! Thus Lesson #7.....What is easy NEVER makes you stronger! The part of me that never quits, that jumps from planes, rides hundreds of miles and climbs mountains on a road bike....the girl that loves to go fast down hills, who values love, spirituality, and is loyal to her good friends and family to a fault--She comes partly from you dad! Your ability to allow me to challenge myself and make my own decisions in life, without holding me back, has allowed me to become a stronger person than I would have been without you. My faith and strength to overcome any obstacles I have encountered in life have to do with you and Mom's support throughout my life. Your ability to teach us right from wrong without enforcing your opinion through guilt, has made me become the strong, independent woman that I am. One who has hope, who loves deeply, sees the good in others, and values and seeks joy in life through the simplest things. My road of personal growth, preferably, will never be too easy because I seek and value challenges and diversity in my choices and the rich experiences in seeing them through. It may be a bit bumpy at times, but I continue to evolve, learn and be me. Whatever it is that is important to me in my life, I will never stop fighting for. As my father, you've allowed me to gain strength, faith and independence in myself, and to be who "I" am -- through that grace, and your unique, quiet guidance and confidence in me, I know I will never let fear stop me....I will always move forward no matter what life brings my way. Thanks to you and Mom, I am very blessed to have you as my Father. Happy Birthday Dad! I Love You! Diana Jean

9: Dear Grandpa, As I learn in life what exactly it takes to be a man in this world. I finf myself thinking

10: A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words | DEAR GRANDPA, AS I LEARN IN LIFE WHAT EXACTLY IT TAKES TO BE A MAN IN THIS WORLD, I FIND MYSELF THINKING ABOUT HOW YOU LEAD YOUR LIFE. YOU'RE WELL READ & ALWAYS HAVE YOUR OWN WELL INFORMED OPINION ON THE ISSUES AT HAND. YOU SEEM TO ALWAYS KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON. ALSO A HARD WORKER, EVEN THOUGH THAT SEEMS LIKE AN UNDERSTATEMENT YOU'VE WORKED ALMOST EVERYDAY OF YOUR RETIREMENT AND DON'T SHOW ANY SIGNS OF STOPPING. YOU'RE LOVING & CARING, AND IT SHOWS IN THE FAMILY YOU'VE HELPED RAISE; MY AUNTS, MY FATHER, ALL US GRAND KIDS AND NOW MAKAYLA. YOU ARE A INSPIRATION IN MY LIFE & IF I COULD BE A FRACTION OF THE MAN YOU ARE ONE DAY, I WOULD CONSIDER MY LIFE FULL. LOVE, YOUR GRANDSON, CHASE

11: Cherish The Ones You Love | Grandpa, I want to wish you a Happy 70th Birthday. It takes a lot of obstacles to overcome to make it over that hill and you made it with so much love and laughter. I just want to thank you. You and Grandma welcomed me and Eric with open arms into your family and never let go. I appreciate it so much, and I am so blessed to be able to call you Grandpa. Whenever I think back I can remember all of the Christmas's, Birthdays and BBQ's that were held in your house in San Jose. It was a house full of memories, many memories I am proud to say I was a part of. So much has happened in my life in the last 13 years, and I am glad to be able to share them with you. Thank you so much for all that you do, and all that you are. Love, Alex P.S. Can't wait to see you and Grandma at Christmas... another memory I can add to my list.

12: Tex gave me some mechanical advice once regarding a ’49 Chevy that I'd bought illegally without my parents’ knowledge and drove for three months with no drivers license. Tex has always been a kind, silent dude sitting in the background. Happy 70th Birthday Tex!!! We wish you many more good and healthy years to whittle your bucket list and to drop your line into that pond. Many Blessings LLOYD and CAROL LARSON

13: I have been thinking of things that remind me of grandpa and a couple of things come to mind right away. How much he truly cared for all of us grandchildren and how he really made us feel special and loved. When I think of him, I think of someone full of love and desire who always shared that with us family. The little guy with the violin brings back memories! I remember always asking grandpa to play the violin. After the guy would finish his song, grandpa would always grab us and start playing the violin/guitar on us- he would really crack himself up and us too! I will also never forget the soap box derby car. Grandpa spent so much time helping us boys to build that car so that we could race in the big soapbox derby race. He was so patient and made sure that we all did a good job. These are just a few of the things I remember when I think about grandpa. To grandpa- I am so grateful for all that I have learned from you! I wish that I could be there with you on your birthday but I will be seeing you soon! Love Blaine

14: Grandpa, I love beating you in "May I" Whenever I ask you if you're ready for a butt whooping, you just give me that little snicker and its on! Even though I always see, to get the spot at the table that's right after you ( so you can steal all on my cards ) I still win ! Maybe one of these days we won't always end up going for the same thing. The best part about all of this is that I think I have honestly only wont he game once, but that's just because you cheat!!! Hahahahaha Happy 70th Birthday Grandpa! I love you & will keep giving you a run for your money! Love Cassie

15: Happy Birthday Tex! We've really enjoyed being your friend and neighbor. I can't even remember how many years it has been, seems like we've been here forever. Your morning walks with Butch and Dixie are always enjoyable. Unfortunately, the old girl can't quite keep up any more, but I know she was always out front waiting for you and dear Katie for that trip around the pond. She had to make quite an adjustment when we lost Katie and Maggie stepped in with her exuberance. Butch is lucky to able to take advantage of your vast knowledge whenever he needed some help with some special project he's might be stuck on. Dinner and domino's are always a hit. Especially when we drop on over to your house for RIBS – the Best-in-Town! Here's to many more years of friendship. Butch and Rhonda

16: Dear Tex: Let me tell you why you are such an amazing person in my life. I never grew up with much in life especially not many material things. But what I did grow up with was the true love of a parent (my mom). We lived through some tough times, especially growing up in a generation of when divorce was frowned upon and was kept a secret from others so you and your family wouldn't be judged. I always felt that not having a father present in my life wouldn't really affect me because I believed that all that my mother did for me and my sister was all we needed. We loved each other unconditionally; there were no limits to our love and affection for each other. We laughed a lot, we cried a lot, but most of all we loved a lot. We would spend some evenings listening to records and dancing and being silly, those are my fondest memories of my mother, the memories of just feeling loved. But my mother fulfilled us in so many ways that I never ever for one minute would think that a lack of a fathers influence would matter much to me. Now at the young age of 50 I look back at my life and know I wouldn't change anything about my loving relationship with my mother and my sister. But what I do see is how the absence of my father did affect me in many areas of my life. One most important area was ‘trust’ and how to accept a man's love, whether it is a friend or a husband and to never feel lonely for this reason again. I have come to realize that we tend to occupy ourselves and overlook those lonely empty feelings. So it wasn't until I met you and Gail and was welcomed into your family did I feel I was at home with my family. You are a man of great respect and random acts of kindness which really aren't random, they are a natural part of your personality characteristic.

17: You are a very giving man and very loving and accepting of me, Alex and Eric, and one whom I love to laugh with and joke with. So when I look at what I’ve gained throughout the years and knowing that just having you become part of my life I truly realize how much I did lose out on without having a father. Tex from the bottom of my heart I truly love you. You have filled a void in me by accepting me, Alex and Eric into your family and caring about me as if I was your own daughter. You have been a very strong loving figure in my life and someone I look up to and someone I’m very proud to say is my father-in-law. If someone has been blessed with having children, you as a Christian have no doubt knowing that God has entrusted you with a most precious treasure. He expects you to give them your very best and raise them with an understanding of His goodness and grace. And I truly believe you've done that. I believe you have touched many people's lives through your random acts of kindness and through this you lead by example. I believe that I am a better person for having you in my life. So thank you for touching my life in such a very special way. And thank you for being such a great grandpa to my boys, for that I will forever be grateful and always love you from the bottom of my heart. Love, Debbie

18: Grandpa, Some of my favorite memories were from when we'd fish together - I even caught my first fish with you! We always had so much fun out on the pond and the best time was when I caught that Big Bass - It was 17 inches long! I'll always remember that one. Another time was when we built that Derby Car. I remember going over and working on it with you , Blaine, & Stephen. It was a great time together and the car looked awesome when it was done - I think we used your age number for it because of all your help. It was pretty neat having you there when we raced it too.
