Sunday, June 20 is Father’s Day, a day set aside in honor of our fathers. It’s always observed the third Sunday of June in the U.S. My siblings, Kay, Jalta, Cliff and I pay tribute in memoriam to our daddy, Joseph Emerson, “Joe” Black – April 3, 1909 to May 20 1984. We, his children, are so thankful to God to have been blessed with a daddy who set the right example for us to follow. He loved us dearly and let us know it. His last words to me via phone call were “I love you and you tell all them young’uns up there I love them too.”
I wish all you dads a very happy Father’s Day and may God bless you always.
