Thinking of you and sending prayers right now. I always looked to see what your Dad had planted in his almost-sidewalk garden. Over the years, he has had quite the garden and some great vegetables growing in a place most people wouldn't expect. I am sure he enjoyed eating these treats. I will miss his garden each time I pass his house. You will continue to be in my prayers.
