My Dad’s Birthday

97 Years Young Today
Dad'sPage3 My Day is 97 years Old today! How wonderful it is. He still has the 3 H’s: His Health, His Head(mind), and His Humor.

You might know him today as the Dad of Dad’s Tomato Garden Journal.

In yesterdays you might have know him as Ray White of one of the following businesses:

  1. White Brothers Poultry & Egg Co.
    (Originated famous Pride of the Flock brand)
  2. White’s Travel Trailers
    (Sold & Service Coachmen, Avion, and many more)
  3. White’s Security Doors
    (First dealer in East Tennessee for Doors of Distinction security doors)

While you may know him as explained above, I know him as my Dad. He has been a wonderful, loving, caring and supportive father… second to none! He’s taught me about honesty, the Bible and putting God first in my life. Happy Birthday, Dad!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
It seems like the kids these days know the price of most everything, but don’t know the value of anything.
