When my Mom died I was worried for my Dad. That’s not Mom in the pic…
My Mom and Dad had spent barely a night apart in their 59 years of marriage. My Dad was left alone, in a big empty house.
My brother was great and stopped by just about every day. I tried to go over and keep my Dad company or take him to lunch. But he was lonely. It was sad.
So, look at that picture of my Dad that was taken just last week. Does he look like a sad lonely man?
Not anymore. You can not imagine how happy we all are since my Dad moved and found all kinds of new friends, including his lady friend, Tucker.
My Dad moved to the C.C. Young Retirement Center (that’s where he met Tucker) and Thursday November 13, I’ll be emceeing the Wrap It Up Luncheon at the Dallas Country Club benefitting the Benevolence Fund at C.C. Young – the place my Dad now calls home. I hope you’ll come to the luncheon and find out more about the place that has literally changed my Dad’s life.
Mrs. Ross Perot is the Honorary Chair for the event. The fundraising luncheon includes holiday shopping with unique and one of a kind items, a fashion presentation by Betty Reiter, Inc., and a special “interview” with me and my Dad.
Tickets for the Wrap It Up Luncheon begin at $175 and can be purchased by contacting the Fundraising Office at C. C. Young at 214-841-2909. Click here to download the official invitation: Wrap It Up Invitation 2014.
I’m not sure how I’m gonna do this event because I know I’m gonna cry, sad tears…and happy ones.
I hope to see you there!
