My two Dads

The 52 Ancestors theme this week is “Father's Day” so I thought I'd share photos of the two fathers in my life. The first group are photos of my father-in-law, Earl Murphy, in different stages of his life. We lost Earl in 2015. I miss him a lot.

The second group are photos of my Daddy, Sam Lankford, in different stages of his life. Daddy is 92 now, living in a nursing home.
