Happy Father’s Day 2022 – June 19, 2022

Happy Father’s Day 2022 to all the fathers out there. My father passed away many years ago, but I try to visit his Find-A-Grave memorial on his birthday, death anniversary, Father’s Day, and at other times when I’m thinking of him. He died when I was somewhat young, and his death was unexpected. He’s buried about 950 miles away so I don’t get to physically visit his grave often. I also do my best to visit my grandfathers’ memorials on Father’s Day. One’s buried within 10 miles of Dad’s grave and the other is buried several states to the north and east of Dad’s grave. I aslo visit the wives’ graves at the same time and leave flower tokens for both spouses. This year I was able to visit my parents’ graves in January.

I do a similar thing on Mother’s Day, visiting my mother, her mother, and her mother-in-law’s graves as well as their spouses. I leave flower tokens for each spouse. It’s one way to honor these individuals when I can’t visit their graves directly.
