For those that don't know... my dad passed away last year on Mar 23rd. Just weeks after his bday Mar 8, 1950. That is today, which he would have been 60.

So just like I have been a part of with a buds family, I'm starting the tradition. On significant days. You do a round of drinks of their favorite. So for my dad, he use to drink Southern Comfort (SoCo) before us kids, sometimes mixed with 7up or Squirt. Then he was more known for drinking long islands and 7&7 (Seagrams 7 & 7up).

So for dad. RIP & We miss you.

My BIL, SIL, Wife, and me. +1 for dad (that I drank)

Then for round 2 (3 for me).

Wife did SoCo with OJ which was also yummy. Guess dad had good taste!!

The loss of a parent is tough. After lossing both my mom and my dad ,I have a pretty good idea what you and your family have been through.

Cheers to Chris and his Dad.
No southern comfort in the house so I did a shot of Jack.

My dad has been gone over 20 years and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. Great tradition, keep it going. I'm sure he was looking down and had a drink with you.

Chris - didn't know about your Dad. Sorry to hear it. Keep his memory alive.

Mine passed in '03. I sure miss the dude. He was a biker back in the late 30s, early 40s. Got me interested in this fine madness.
