HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DAD–He would have been 102 years old todayMy Dad was the son of Harry W. Gould & Marie Lindsay. He was born on New Year’s Eve 1912 in Detroit, Michigan. He died on 3 Feb 1991 in Trenton, Wayne, Michigan.
Throughout my life it was always a double celebration on New Year’s Eve.
My Dad loved to laugh and he was a great story teller. He could remember so many jokes and I never knew how he did it.
I’m thankful that I went through old family photos with him in the years before he died. There are many we still hadn’t gotten to and I would give anything to ask him a few questions.
ALWAYS ask your parents & grandparents questions about their families. Use your smart phone or your tablet and record your conversation or write things down. You will never regret it.
Here are some pictures from the past. My grandmother, my Dad’s mother, had an old photo album. You know, the kind with the black pages. She and my grandpa took quite a few pictures. Hard to believe these pictures are 100 years old.
