|My Dad is with Jesus. He passed peacefully this afternoon with me by his side. I’d like to share these things about him…
First, he loved his children and was always there for us. He never said no. When you
Needed him, he was always there for us. He also had a remedy for whatever was ailing you, be it, a cough, sore throat, or anything else that you had going on. We used to refer to him as, “Dr. Stempien.”
He loved music, photography, driving, and loved to be in the kitchen cooking or baking.
I can’t tell you how many times he’d bake something and asked me to be sure to taste it.
He also loved his dogs. He grew up on a farm in Oakfield, NY and Bootsie was one of his childhood dogs.
My parents have been married for 64 years! Quite the accomplishment to say the least.
They raised 4 children, have 7 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. They were truly blessed!
I just want to say that I am going to miss my Dad a whole lot. He taught me how to drive and gave me many tips about photography. I was fortunate enough to work a long side of him at Government Center Camera and North Station Camera for 20 years! I treasure those memories.
In closing, I just want to add that I’m not going to say “Goodbye” to my Dad, but “till we see each other again in Heaven.”
