Portrait of Brian-2
Today is Father’s Day in the United States of America. In celebration of Father’s Day I shall make a portrait of a father.
Brian was a father of four, a stepfather of two and a grandfather of five.
As you can see by the patches on his motorcycle jacket, aside from wearing multiple father hats, Brian was also a Patriot Guard Rider. These volunteers had “an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security including Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and honorably discharged Veterans.” (See the website for more.)
Brian had a lot of useful everyday-survival skills. He was a trained automobile mechanic, he had some experience with plumbing, he could figure out how to troubleshoot and fix all kinds of things, and he knew an amazing amount of information about cars. For example, if you would find a car part, he could tell you exactly where it came from, that is the engine, the transmission , or any other system and what car came from and even the year.
Brian was a great person, a great friend, a true patriot, but most importantly, a very loving, devoted, concerned and giving father.
One more thing, Brian is my biggest follower of this blog. He makes a comment everyday. I asked him if he thought I should put a baby or a father up today, and he, of course, said a father. So, naturally, I chose him.
