A Memory For My Dad.

Share Button

When my father passed away two years ago, his ashes were interned at Fort Rosecrans Memorial Cemetery. After the ceremony, we gathered at my little brother’s house in Carlsbad. There we enjoyed food and drink, and as is expected when the Alexander family gathers in large numbers, we broke out in song. Here we are goofing on a Paul Simon song. At the end my sister Mary Beth breaks into some impromptu vocal percussion, and if you know the song, you’ll understand why we are busting up. Dad would have loved it. We love you and miss you.

Bobby Lyle Alexander, Born Sept. 8, 1930. Died Nov. 28, 2006.
