My dad carries his fathers name first, (and of course, last) but the middle is the one he was know as professionally. His last name was shortened to Augie. Nearly 40 years ago, he decided to sell bratwurst at the local fair...Time passed, his daughters married, his son as well. Over time, we became Augie's Brats. Yep, that is Mom and Dad's children, grandchildren and greats as well. Tomorrow it has been 77 years since he made his debut. We loved to celebrate his birthday every year. Tomorrow, as we celebrate his love for us, we will be mourning our loss. You see, he passed away unexpectedly and suddenly today, in the dark hours before dawn. I love you Dad.
My blogging friends, I know you are believers, so I thank you in advance for your kindness and prayers. Please forgive me for not offering responses or posting comments. I have two siblings coming from other states. Would you kindly offer a prayer of travel mercies, and comfort to those that are not able to come. They loved Papa Augie too.
